Beachbody Coaching: Leadership Webinar for the Bombshell Dynasty
LISTEN HERE -->> Developing the Leader Within
 Leadership!


Leading: Shaping your team culture and mission through vision, innovation and inspiration. It’s moving people emotionally to make that vision a reality

I have 5 main points I’m going to cover on Leadership. I don’t want to just give you vague tips so  I’m going to give you some actionable steps that you can reflect on and implement. I’m a huge note taker so here is a little preview of the talking points.
1. Mindset: Employee vs. Entrepreneur/Leader
2. You Must Know Yourself to Grow Yourself
3. Start Where You Are (Don’t Compare Yourself to Others)
4.  Inspiring Leadership
5. Leaders are proactive not reactive

So let’s dive right in.

 1. Mindset: Employee vs. Entrepreneur/Leader


We’re groomed to be great employees- when you’re young, you have your parents & teachers giving you specific direction & if you sway from that...you are reprimanded.  Your taught to follow direction and play by the rules. As you grow up, you work an entry level job where you perform a few simple mundane tasks.
You’re told what to do and how to do it. In a sense, you are a drone. Punch in, satisfy your job requirements, stay out of trouble, punch out.
Everyday people experience this gap between where they are and where they want to be...over time  some people start to forget their dreams...they forget their passions, talents and skills and simply settle in to this employee/boss mentality.
They advance in their career and get good following direction...so they are promoted to  tell  OTHERS below them what to do and how to do it. <
This is a dangerous mindset to be in- you can forget about all of your amazing skills, talents and abilities.

You are special, incredible and individual and you have something special to share with the world. Let that shine! Let the beauty that’s inside you come out!!

So what does an entrepreneur or a  leader do to break out of that cycle?

They lead from the front! They don’t sit back and wait for instruction- they leap into action and fail their way into success.  They COACH people and work on bringing out the natural talents and abilities of their team, successes are a team effort, and the lead with PASSION and nurture relationships.
If you’re an entrepreneur, you’re willing to do whatever it takes to reach your goals. You will never punch in and out because your  job will never be done- you’re wired to accomplish more than you’re accomplishing right now. You want to experience more than you’re currently experiencing. If you are an entrepreneur, you’re driven and focused to take that next step. To rise to the next level of greatness.
Entrepreneurs aren’t necessarily concerned with the glamorous. They’re willing to do what few others are willing to do in order to obtain the results that very few ever experience… even if it takes 1...3..5..10 years to build it. Luckily for us, you can build your Beachbody business a lot faster than entrepreneurs who are starting from scratch! z
Employees are paid for TIME spent, entreprenuers are paid for VALUE created! True leaders what customers to walk away feeling like they got a tremendous VALUE! Like they got much more value than they created.
Employess focus on Activity while entrepreneurs focus on creating systems
Employees AVOID fear while Entre. EMBRACE IT
Employees SPEND money while Entre. INVEST it.
So the questions is… what about you? How would you classify yourself? How do you lead in your organization?
Are you just going to ‘follow-the-leader’ and ‘obey’ and ‘do what you need to do to keep your head above water’ and continue to see the same results over and over… or… are you going to take ownership of your business and do whatever it takes to accomplish your goals? Are you going to SHOW your coaches how its done instead of bossing them around?
Most Jobs are led with ‘drone’ leadership. “Yes men”. Employees. I’m not saying lazy people but people that do just enough to stay on the payroll and out of trouble.
When we become entrepreneurs and leaders, it creates an urgency and aggressiveness inside of us that forces us to be bolder in our efforts to reach and help people.
Which one will you be today?

 Actionables!
#1 – Find someone who has done what you want to do, achieved what you want to achieve and watch THEM! What makes them interesting, intriguing, successful? If you watch long enough you will see a pattern! SUCCESS LEAVES CLUES!
#2 – Get outside of your comfort zone! If you wake up and don’t get butterflies about what you have to do that day… you are no longer challenging yourself… which means you are NO LONGER GROWING! If you are no longer growing… you are dying in my opinion. Find one way to jump outside of your comfort zone. The danger of being your own boss is no one is going to give you direction and make you do anything. You have to light your own passion on fire!
 2. You Must Know Yourself to Grow Yourself

To grow, you must know your strengths and weaknesses, your interests and opportunities. You must know what DRIVES you!
Get really clear on your mission and what you believe in. If you are not clear, no one else will be either. If you want to grow your team, you must know where you are coming from and what skills you need to develop to become the BEST leader possible.

Now Interestingly enough...most people won’t gravitate toward you because of your 6 pack abs...People gravitate toward your “Why”   The Why is something emotional that they can connect with.
Everyone has a story, a past and obstacles they overcame to get where you are today.
Don’t get caught in the failed thinking of “I’m just a normal person- nothing particularly traumatic has every happened to me so I don't have a story”
Take me for example- Im a girl in my 20s, never had kids, lost 20 lbs with P90X..nothing crazy. I share my struggles with not knowing what to eat, about being so frustrated you resort to the starvation diet and then throw up your hands and decide that I’m just meant to stay fat. I share that I used to take diet pills and workout on the treadmill for 2 hours with no results until I found something that worked.
No matter what your history is….Get clear about who you are and where you’ve been. Use your God Given skills and talents to figure out the best way to share your message.
Once you are clear on this, you can start attracting customer and coaches who want and believe the same things and who share some of the same experiences as you.

Know your passion and start making a game plan! Stand in front of a mirror and really explore who you are and what is important to you and then you can start steering your ship down that path.
My vision is so much bigger than just helping people lose weight. My goal is to help transform their hearts, to instill a belief in them, to revive their dreams and to encourage women to stretch outside of their comfort zone and reach for those big goals!!

 Actionable:

– BE CLEAR about what you want and WHY you want it — and then get FOCUSED! (LASER FOCUSED!) Become a marksmen with your goals.
You are your OWN boss! The leader of your development and destiny. You make the rules, you take the action, you determine the results!
When you become a true LEADER...others are inspired by your conviction and follow suit! THAT is how you build a team. That is how you create momentum and THAT is how you change not only YOUR life, but the lives of countless others!
The best leaders share their passion and light the path for others to join them!


 3. Start Where You Are ( And Don’t Compare Yourself to Others)


Leaders don’t make excuses, they focus on the long haul
Prosper where you are planted.  You have tons of opportunity around you. You just have to start recognizing them.  Warning opportunities might look like work! ;P
You have a unique set of skills and talents and it’s all about recognizing and developing your skills to use the opportunities before you.

Don’t get trapped in the “I would be successful IF…”   I would be successful “If I had…” a had a huge team... A ton of friends, a lot of people willing to buy...etc…
The world doesn’t owe you anything and it’s not going to hand you success on a sliver platter.  

You might not have all of the answers, you might not have done all of the training, but just dive right in! I have a brand new coach who hit Emerald and 10 success club points within 6 days of signing up...Why? Because she was willing to just put herself out there and didn’t worry about not having all of the answers.
Jump and you’ll stretch yourself outside of your comfort zone which will help you develop into the leader you need to become to lead a successful team!
You cannot win if you don’t begin!!
If you become aware of the steps you must take and become accountable for the follow through...you will begin to produce the results you want and start inching closer to your goal. The Cool side effect? You start attracting like minded people! People who see your vision!
You want something, you’ve gotta stop with the whining, the procrastinating, the thinking, the planning, the regretting, the ifs ands or buts… and DO SOMETHING about it! Where there seems there is no way… YOU MAKE A WAY

Run your own race! Stop comparing your business/skills/talents to others. Develop a laser focus and control the things that you can control...your actions.
Successful leaders don’t resent other people’s success. They dont become jealous or resentful when others do well (although the might take notes on what that person does well!) They are willing to work hard for their own chance at success. Be in it for the long haul- dont make the mistake of expecting immediate results. Apply your time and energy daily and celebrate the success milestones along the way!

 Actionablees

Assess your skills, talents and natural abilities!
Take a look at the resources you have available to you (Google is my fav!!)
List your FAVORITE business building activities


 4.  Inspiring Leadership
Great leaders INSPIRE their team and bring out their best qualities. Being a leader is not about putting greatness into people...it’s about bringing out the inner greatness that is already there!

Are you managing or inspiring?

 ACTIONABLE

1.Ignite your Enthusiasm: You cannot inspire unless YOU are inspired! Every inspiring leader is abundanting PASSIONATE ..not about their product but what their product means to customers. Steve Jobs was not passionate about computers...he was passionate about building tools to help people unleash their creativity. Big difference!
2.Navigate a Course of Action: Nothing extraordinary every happened without a leader articulation a vision, a course of action. (Think about JFK & the moon mission) Bold vision creates excitement and inspires
3.Paint a Picture- Our brains are programmed for stories more than abstract ideas. Personal anecdotes can build a closer connection between leaders and their teams(think about how inspiring Lindsay MATways story is)
4.Invite Participation- Invite your coaches to share ideas, empower them to bring their own talents and strengths to the table! Invite them to create videos for coach training and help lead team calls
5.Encourage Potential- encourage your coaches to dream big and share those dreams- share their why and what drives them. Give praise



 5. Leaders are proactive not reactive

What is the difference between proactive and reactive.

A proactive leader can focus on business build activities that create value.
If you spend your day being reactive...you will live in chaos, at the mercy of others agenda and not only will you not get anything done...you’ll end the day feeling frazzled instead of empowered.





ACTIONABLE
Start your day with PURPOSE!
The Big 3: What are the 3 biggest business building activities you can do?
Encourage your coaches to become independent from you as quickly as possible- teach them how to use the resources available.
Turn of the pings/dings on your cellphone. Close all distractions when working on your Big 3!
Remember, if you fall into “management mode” and stop doing the activities that bring you customers/business…your team will follow suit. They duplicate what you do!
