I've been blogging a great deal lately about leadership, and there's a reason why. A company is as good as their leaders. Let's look at what makes a great leader. First, they are always positive with their downline. They may call their sponsor and "vent" a time or two, but they absolutely never take negative downline or sideline. The want ultimate company success, long term, and know that negativity and "stirring the pot" causes a breakdown in communication, trust and loyalty. They emulate their upline to their downline, and if they have suggestions, they bring to the table constructive points for discussion with their sponsor and upline leader. They follow the path that has been laid out for them to follow (the 4-Step System), and they don't cause confusion in the field by teaching yet a different way to do business, which is in direct conflict with their upline team. They recognize the talents everyone brings to the table with humility and reference.
"The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy."

Leaders in Network Marketing are a rare gift to any company. They are self-motivated, goal-oriented, individuals who want more from themselves, and see the best in those they lead. They listen to our Monday morning Leadership 7am call and immediately book a call with their team to pass on the information. Leaders have vision for the future. They see what is going to happen and step up and lead the way to achieving those long term goals. They set the example for their team. They don't tell their team what to do. They show the team how to do it. They consistently sample - sell - sponsor, follow the 4-step system, participate in all of the calls, and move the business forward. Leaders are rare gifts. Elaine Tomrell, pictured above, is one of those rare gifts that we value and thank the Lord for everyday with Voyager. She is also a great friend. Thank you Elaine for creating, developing and leading your amazing team!
