Solid Leadership Doesn't Chase People On Social Media

Apparently the MLM "Zeek Awards" is having overwhelming problems, and has had to "close it's doors." I'm not really familiar with the whole situation but I am disappointed with the behavior of some individuals in competing businesses. While I'm sure they view this as an opportunity to extend a hand to people in need, while at the same time expanding their down line, it speaks volumes to the lack of leadership and community building skills.

First of all the people who are suffering while their livelihood is in question are in turmoil right now. Questions are flying up and down the line of sponsorship while each of them are searching for the meaning of the events that just happened. They are wondering, do we have a business model, are we out of business, can this be salvaged, why did this happen? There are certainly more questions than answers right now. The last thing these entrepreneurs need is a flock of vultures circling looking to pick their bones clean.

If the leaders of the "Zeek Awards" model are truly leaders the hierarchy will begin to inform and supply answers to those questions. Should they decide it's time to move on, they will interview opportunities to find the right fit for those they lead. They will not flock to some desperate individual promoting their opportunity on Facebook. They will seek solid leadership first, grounded in a foundation of principle and reinforced with a proven business model. Solid leadership doesn't chase people on social media.

These people need to heal. They just had the rug pulled out from under them. Leadership and people skills are demanded at this point in time, not the offer of joining a compensation plan. When these offers are made, they reveal the true nature of your business. Your out to "get people". There is no concern offered for the individual, just the expansion of your down line. Building compensated communities of people require that you put the people first, the compensation will follow. How does one expect to build a solid business based on people, when their emotional needs are ignored from the get go?

Real leaders don't need to advertise in social media, newspapers, or with signs on the side of the road. That's a sign of desperation and frankly a lack of concern for the people you work with. It screams, "we don't care about the people we chose to represent our product." That, my friends, is less than attractive.

Zeek people, seek leadership and personal development if there is a need for another opportunity in your life. Now is a time for healing and concern for your down line, that's how leaders confront adversity! When the student is ready, the teacher will appear. Avoid the desperate carnival style barking trying to lure you into their game of chance. Put the people first!

God Bless!
