I have worked with thousands of 6 figure earners at all levels of the game. And one of the most common challenges of every high-level earner is relationships.
You probably think that relationships shouldn’t be a challenge for a top earner because we build our organization based upon relationships. We have relationships with our prospects and team. We are relationship professionals. And you’re right. However…
Relationships are one of the blocks that keep many from going to the next level. There’s an art as a leader to building the right kind of relationships with your team. You want a relationship that still has power, authority, and friendship. But you have to be careful you’re not too familiar. If you have too much familiarity with your team, people won’t listen or respect you. So, you have to balance it.
Another relationship to work on is with people in your crossline. You have to make sure it doesn’t become an us vs. them scenario. You want to keep pride in your team without creating political drama within the organization. Your relationship with the home office is also important. You may not think you need to worry about the home office, but if you want to go to the top, then having a strong relationship with the home office is vital.
Finally, top earners struggle with relationships at home. Some work together as a couple, and there are dynamics there that need to be examined. One might be more dominant than the other at growing the organization, and that could create guilt and resentment. Even if you don’t run your business with your spouse, you still have to think about your relationship with your spouse, kids, and family. After all, you don’t want to just get a big business and lose your family. So, you have to balance keeping your focus and drive while also maintaining relationships and allowing family members to find their place.
Mastering these relationships is something that million-dollar earners have had to do. They may not be perfect, but they understand that these relationships are what bring value to their life and the organizations they’re growing.
I tell you all this because leadership has been on my mind lately with the Six Figure Summit Online Broadcast Event coming up. During this event, we will talk about tactics and strategies to strengthen relationships.
