“The good news is, talent is overrated when it comes to making an impact as a leader.”
His coach once told him, “Kevin, you are presenting because no one else is as qualified because no one else is you. You lead by being you. Don’t perform. Don’t try hard. Just be you. That’s all it takes.”
This led him to determine "10 traits that require no talent from you as a leader, but will net you strong results."
- Being on Time
- Work Ethic - "When the work gets hard, work hard."
- Effort - "Those whose efforts push harder will be promoted higher."
- Body Language - "Make an impact by how you carry yourself. Hold your shoulders back, look people in the eye, don’t sigh when working and stand still instead of shifting weight."
- Attitude - "Lead yourself to determine your attitude instead of allowing circumstances to determine it for you."
- Being Coachable
- Doing Extra
- Being Prepared
