Welcome to Winning Leader Wednesdays, where the focus is upon building you as leaders in the home, organizations and as entrepreneurs!
We will also add a special touch of building lady leaders and helping you market well as business owners. This is one of my favorite days!
We are continuing with the series on the composition of successful lady leaders. Trait #9 is here!
A successful lady leader has a network!
Yes! A successful woman in leadership has a network! Every leader has a network, which is especially useful for long-term development. Once upon a time networking conjured images of boys being boys in smoky rooms and making deals with friends, but that isn’t the case these days; it’s all about building meaningful relationships with her colleagues.
This is indeed true as I reflect upon my own journey. I have a network of great leaders on and offline who have helped me grow and vice versa. Some leaders will remain in your life for a season while others may stay for a lifetime. Only the Most High knows as its apart of His divine plan.
So, if you desire to be successful my sister (and my brother, if you are reading this also), grow a strong network of men and women. Your network will determine your net-worth.
How do you grow a network?
- Intentionally friend people on social media to build relationships (instead of selling to them initially),
- Meet and greet others at local mixers, or
- Re-connect with people you are connected to in your phone database.
There is support that exists to help you build a strong network. It is found within the Born to Lead global women’s leadership campaign. The campaign is not a CLUB, CULT or another ORGANIZATION. It is the FIRE you need to be persistent in the coming days, weeks and months. It’s free to get plugged in. CLICK HERE to learn more and register.
I salute you and your journey as a leader and look forward to sowing more great value into your life. Thank you for being connected here on the global leadership blog.
