Chances are if you have spent any amount of time taking your network marketing business seriously, you have seen, heard, or dealt with the upline that thinks they are the boss! Often this is from the person that isn't or wasn't the boss at their place of employment, so the logical thing to do is take that to the network marketing arena right? Wrong lol. The last thing you want as an entrepreneur is someone bossing you around. You didn't join your company to get a NEW boss, you joined to have the OPTION of having one in the first place. So in today's video I am going to share some ways of dealing with the BOSSY upline and more importantly how you can AVOID becoming that upline with your team. And if you dont have a team yet (or less than 20 people) Be sure to grab access to your Breakthrough Sessions and recruit your first 10-20 team members fast!
How To Handle The Bossy UpLine
- Look At You First – Its pretty easy to blame things on other people. Especially in the network marketing industry that requires a certain level of professionalism but often lacks professional people. If you are dealing with a bossy upline first see what you can control first! Is it your words, is it the way you speak to them? Could It possibly be that you're showing employee type tendencies. Often times if we change something we are doing it can cause an entirely different response from the other party.
- Posture Up – Its time to take control of your power and posture. One thing you have to develop if you want to be successful in this industry is POSTURE. This one key skill can keep the most bossy of upline leaders from preying on you. This is something you will want to share with your team as well. Take posture seriously and it can change your life forever. One way to increase your posture is to increase your belief about your community, leadership, training, and support. You do this by actually showing up to those four things. This will help you develop posture not only with your upline and others, but most importantly your prospects
- Go Up The Success Chain – If you just can't shake a bad upline sponsor its not the end of the world. Simply contact the next leader up! Now I know this sounds simple, but there is a particular way to go about this move. Be sure to acknowledge that you value their time and want to learn as much as you can from them. Also, this is not a snitch fest, do NOT make this about your sponsor or “bossy” upline. Make this about helping with the growth of the organization as a whole and you playing a bigger role!
