Have you ever considered coaching for your network marketing business--or life in general? Most of us haven’t. Yet we may be missing out on one of the elements of true success.
Let’s Talk Sports
Coaching is an important element for a sports team. The coach gets huge credit for the winning or losing teams. The coach watches from the sidelines and gives feedback. This outside view can see the big picture and give pointers so the players know what direction to move and what strategy to use. Behind the scenes a coach helps the players set a training schedule, learn necessary skills and build strength. And then the coach holds the members accountable for doing their part.
Network Marketing or MLM: Team Sport
A successful business doesn’t just appear. First a leader must arise. Personal development is required. Leaders must develop the skills, mindset and strength of a leader. They need a positive attitude and good work habits.
Leadership Coaching for network marketing offers much the same value as a sports coach: A view from the sidelines, support, training ideas and accountability. It works the same in sports, daily life or in a network marketing or MLM business.
Leadership Coaching: What is it?
Effective leadership coaching does NOT dictate anyone’s life.
Doesn’t make decisions for the client’s business or life. Doesn’t force any agenda or time frame, and is never judgmental. A good coach is always respectful of the client’s perspective and looks for the best in that person. The coach recognizes and celebrates the client’s gifts and who they are.
Empowering questions and compassionate listening are the mark of effective leadership coaching. The coach trusts the client to make good decisions while encouraging and supporting their personal development. At the same time, the coach must be willing to tell the truth about what is observed in the client’s behavior and report with honesty and respect.
Leadership coaching is open minded and engages in “boom thinking,” encouraging the client to recognize the power of thoughts and feelings and work to shift negative patterns to positive ones. Solutions pop up that are outside the box or in a blind spots. A coach helps the client to break free of old thinking and create a new positive mindset.
Personal Development Skills
Did you know that 3 years after winning the lottery most people are again, dead broke. Unless the have developed the personal mindset of a successful person, they will revert to their former state. A leadership coach will have access to skill training and personal development strategies to help the client make the shifts they want in their personal and business life. So they will become a Leader.
Personal development and leadership strategies include:
- Values Assessment and Goal Setting
- Determining Priorities
- Creating an action plan
- Time Management skills
- Efficient Organization
- Emotional Freedom Technique

Leadership coaching can help. It works much the same in sports, network marketing and MLM, or life in general. We all need to be accountable for taking the actions that lead to success and it is often easiest when we ask someone to hold us to it.A coach will do just that, as well as offer training ideas and personal development strategies.
Becoming a leader that others will follow requires learning leadership skills and attitudes.
