5 Ways To Instill Passion In Your Organization

5 Ways To Instill Passion Into Your Organization

We all know that it is difficult to define or to measure passion within a company or an organization but there are ways to create it. Read the article and see what you're doing correctly or incorrectly. But first, check your attitude because a bad attitude from the boss or from the leader who is looked up to within an organization can set the temperature of any organization. Enough said about that...... I'm sure you understand that without going into to so much detail.

Let the people in your organization show their emotions. 
Expression and freedom to show true transparency is extremely important to each individual in any organization. It's healthy. However, adaquate coaching must be taught to assure guidelines are adhered to regarding professinalism in business, and how to remain positive. Most people join a Network Marketing business on an emotional decision. In fact, approximately 80% of all representatives sign up in a Network Marketing company without any knowledge of the business, but are emotionally connected. If a company or product line doesn't have an emotional attachment which strongly holds onto the hearts of the brand partners, the company is merely based on money and not uniqueness in product or company. 
 
Choose Passionate people to work with.
Those who are passionate about their involvement in your business, or about the product are going to be the best leaders within any organization. You will never gain substantial growth within an organization without passionate leaders. The greatest passion of all is when a leader has the passion to lead, and to help others. A leader who has passion only for their own interests will eventually fail in the business of Network Marketing. The greatest leaders understand the powerful impact passion has, and the best passion of all is evident within an organization which sees the need for strong directive and coaching. Those who will achieve the most will have a combination of passion and pride in becoming a leader. Network Marketing is a leadership factory.
 
Find the flames and fan the flames. 
I've always said, "The leader who finds the stars within his/her organization, recognizes the fire of a specific leader or leaders, and pulls those people close to him/her, will have tremendous results." Why is this? You MUST spend 80% of your time on those who make you 80% of your success. Most Networkers get this backwards. They spend 80% of their time trying to get those who aren't achieving to wake up and catch up. This will kill your business. Give everyone a chance, support all within a general level, but pull your top achievers close to you and fan the flames of the fire they have become. Take the stars within your organization and create galaxies. This then becomes a universe of empowerment which, if managed correctly, will create a substantial, unstoppable team.
 
Don't sedate your Stars by taking away their passion.
Learn to lead by encouragement, empowerment, edification, transformation, and servitude. Strong leaders are important. They may challenge your own personal will. You may feel they have the ability to out-shine your own personal leadership skill level. If this is the case, you may have that winner you should embrace and bring very close to your core advisory team and encourage that person to excel in their leadership and freedoms to achieve. Don't throw cold water on their passion. Appreciate them. However it is imperative to assure they are not working against you and the system in place. Embracing such a leader is the only way you will assure this will happen correctly. Find a way to bring out creativity and edify their efforts, their ideas, their charisma, and take the initiative to be the leader who understands the empowerment process. Every true leader surrounds himself/herself with people who are stronger than they are themselves. 
 
Share context within your top leadership group. 
Find value in the thoughts and ideas of others, develop collaberation and determine the common denominators which will make sense. Also find the psychologic flow of how to implement the ideas. Some ideas will work, some won't and some, even though they are excellent ideas, will destroy the flow of what the overall objective might be. However there must be an environment of open communication so that all the leadership has a comfort in feeling important, respected and their input is contemplated among the core group of leadership. You will never reach your potential as a team, a company, or an organization without the collaberative input of every level involved. 
There has never been continuity in true greatness with dictatorship or the lack of respect of those you have entering your organization. Be open to listening to those who are new to your organization as they may have many great ideas prior to being contaminated by a culture which has become tainted with blinded concepts. 
 
Leading an organization isn't easy, but it is much harder if you decide to dictate instead of lead. Spreading the responsibility will take a broader perspective, develop leaders which have greater respect for their company, their team, and you.
