Cross Recruiting and Cross Lining
Cross Recruiting is defined by the direct selling agency as “The attempt to convert one or more salesforce members from one company to another.”
Cross lining on the other hand is when someone tries to convert one or more persons to switch between teams in the same company.
Neither one of these is acceptable in my opinion. These are practices done by those people whose integrity is very much in question. People who don't respect the sanctity of someone else's business.
From my understanding more lawsuits are filed every year concerning cross recruiting and cross lining than all others combined. This should be telling us something.
Not only is just not an ethical thing to do, it give our profession of Network Marketing a very bad name. You've all heard of those leaders that jumped to another company because of a big bonus and then tried to recruit as many as they could from the old company causing devastation in their wake.
I personally can't think of one time when this is a good or acceptable behavior.
Cross Lining is equally bad. I've been in company's before where some leaders were encouraging other lesser leaders on other teams to quit and re-join under them and bring their team with them.
How bad is that!!!! It shows such a lack of integrity and moral compass.
Here's my advice on cross recruiting and cross lining… If you are in doubt of what you are doing is either DON'T DO IT! I love a saying that I heard a owner in an old company I was in years ago. “If it isn't right, don't do it, if it isn't true don't say it.”
At the end of the day all you have is your integrity and honor. Don't screw that up over greed!
This is something that I totally admire about my upline and mentor Ray and Jessica Higdon. They are of the highest integrity and two of the most honorable people I know.
Well okay, enough ranting and raving. Just had to get this off my chest today.
Hope this has given you some value and you will share this with your team and comment below.
