Why you SHOULD NOT put up with negative behaviour if you’re a LEADER?

Posted by Gediminas Grinevicius on Thursday, November 19, 2020 Under: Personal Development

I want to talk a bit about leadership and negative behaviour within your team. The title of this blog post is why you should not put up with negative behaviour if you're a leader.

Now, you might say, well, you shouldn't put up with every negative behaviour either way and you would be right; but especially, if you're a leader, why? Because if you're a leader of a team, and you have many people in your team, and there's somebody who behaves negatively, who's toxic, who is demanding, who is maybe complaining, who is maybe humiliating or criticizing or bullying other people in the team, or you.

If you as a leader, put up with it, if somebody spits in your face, and you just smile and you go, “Yeah, no problem.” If you do that, not only you're humiliating yourself, and you're reducing your own self-esteem, but also, don't forget that your team members are observing you and if they see that you as a leader, put up with negative behaviour, you allow negative behaviour, then they will think, “Oh, so if I become a leader, I will also be dealing with this crap as well and will also to have to allow this crap go on in my team.”

The fastest way to make sure that you have no leaders in your team is to show your team members that leadership sucks. If you put up with negative behaviour, if you allow people to humiliate you, if you allow people to behave in toxic ways, then you're showing your team members, that that's what leadership is all about. And guess how many of your team members will want to become a leader and deal with that crap on top of the crap they’re already dealing? Not that many. Most people will say, “If that's what leadership is all about, I don't want to be a leader.” That's why like Tony Robbins says, “Kill a monster while it's a baby.” If you have somebody in your team who is a toxic person, who is causing aggravation, who is negative to you, or other people who is criticizing, who's complaining, and so on, you have to cut them loose as soon as possible.

Now, you might still communicate with them one on one, but you might have to remove them from your team groups, you might have to forbid them from attending any team events, if it comes to that. And I know it's not nice, I know it sucks when you have to make decisions like that, but it's for the greater good and is to protect the rest of your team, to protect the culture within your team, to protect the energy within your team, sometimes you will have to cut out some tumours from your team by just saying, “Hey, look, doesn't look like it's going to work out, the way you behave and the way I lead is just not going to click unfortunately, you're going to have to look for a new home.”

And sometimes that's what's going to happen. But this, in the end or long run, this is going to protect you because you’re less stressed and increase amount of leaders that will becoming your team. If you've been in network marketing for a while and I'm talking like maybe a year, a couple of years, and there's not many leaders coming up in your team, there's not many people wishing to take to do what you do, think about it. Maybe there is something that your team members are observing you doing, which is causing them to say, “Oh, I don't want to be a leader. Oh, I wouldn’t like that. Sometimes we actually stop our team members from becoming leaders by doing certain things that scare other people from becoming leaders too. So have a think about that too.
