126: How to Handle a Leader Leaving to Join Another Company
There’s a very delicate topic that we leaders have to deal with, which is a byproduct of building a big business, and that is how to handle when a leader leaves to join another company. One of your leaders leaving for another company is one of the hardest things you will face in your network marketing career. In that moment, it feels like your entire business is falling apart and that everything you’ve worked so hard for is suddenly being destroyed. But I want you to understand that how you handle this, how you respond and react, will have a far greater impact on your long-term success than that person actually leaving.

But I want you to know that going into attack mode is a bad idea. In this podcast episode, I share with you tips on how to handle these situations, why as leaders we need to lead with character and love, and some actionable steps that will definitely keep you out of the drama.
