What Does Leadership Look Like?

Ginger Williford, New Executive Director
What does a leader look like? Are there born leaders, or are they developed? What attributes do leaders possess? 

John Maxwell says, "A potential leader is the one who would be able to mentally sustain you organization's vision if you quit thinking for the next month."

Stephen Covey, the 8th habit says, "Leadership is communicating to people their worth and potential so clearly that they come to see it in themselves." 

Both of these great motivational speakers and authors define leadership as having vision, being able to communicate, be mentally strong and focused on the task, and able to develop and empower people. In our business of network marketing these attributes are evident, and adding to that ... leaders lead by example and follow the path laid out for them by their leaders. They plug into a system, teach that system, don't try to re-invent the wheel, and stay on target with their goals until those goals are achieved. They are goal-oriented, busy people who, no matter what, get the job done. They are plugged into weekly calls and activities, promote those same activities with their team, and stay positive and productive.

We are blessed to have some of the best leaders involved with us on our team. Our newest addition to the Executive ranks is mother of five (5), Ginger Williford of North Carolina. Ginger juggles managing an office, her five children and her Voyager business, and does it all with passion and love. She radiates a positive attitude and is always looking to help with a solution vs a criticism. Ginger gives credit to those who have helped her along the way, and is always listening and learning how to do this business better. Her duplicating spirit is why she is succeeding with building her business. 

So, when answering the question "what does leadership look like?" Our answer is simple, Ginger Williford. A hard-working, goal-oriented woman who wants everyone around her to succeed. That why network marketing is the perfect business for her. Ginger (and all of our fabulous mothers and leaders)...HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!!!
