Great leaders are passionate about building and leading excellent teams. A team based on mediocrity reflects negatively on the leadership itself. However, building a high performing team needs persistence and constant pursuit of personal and professional development. Jose Ardon, a passionate entrepreneur from Latin America set an example for the same.
He handpicked those who had the desire and the zeal to make a difference for themselves and for others. He looked for the traits that went beyond the desire to earn money. Those who got involved in their community and fostered strong relationships outside of work stood out for him.
Jose first created an environment where each of the team members could take responsibility, enhance their confidence and develop strong leadership qualities. He helped them to build resilience, which is not to get discouraged if things don’t go the way it was planned. Rather he taught them how to think of innovative ways to turn situations around. He gained their trust and loyalty and was transparent. Clear and effective communication reduces rework and this quality is a must in any leader. He incorporated these practices and as on date he is working towards building a network of 1 million distributors in the next 3 years.
Being born in a family with limited resources it did not deter him to dream big. At a young age of 17, he chose to pursue his so-called American dream and headed towards the United States with only 100 dollars in his wallet. It took him 6 months to reach America but he did not waver in his determination at all.
In 2004, he attended a big business event and which was his breakthrough. It was attended by 4000 participants and it was there that he got familiar with the ways in which others like him became successful. He made up his mind to explore this new avenue. His determination was rock-solid.
True victory is when it is shared with others so, he was determined to return to Latin America, his homeland and empower others like him to win in the world through the power of knowledge.
Taking the responsibility to lead others towards success especially in this fast-changing world is not easy but with the right attitude, strategies and empathy, he has achieved this.
