Listen to Part 2 here:

Today Mark Cole and Chris Goede begin a new two-part series in which John Maxwell teaches five things that don’t require talent. These are characteristics every growing leader must embrace to get out of what we at Maxwell Leadership call “the people pile.” If you learn these five things, you’ll take your leadership to the next level. Today we’ll talk about points one and two. And next week, we’ll cover three through five.

Key Takeaways:

  • Nothing is interesting if you’re not interested
  • Look for and plan your teachable moments
  • Lack of responsibility = lack of initiative

Our BONUS resource for this episode is the “Things That Don’t Require Talent Worksheet,” which includes fill-in-the-blank notes from John’s teaching. You can download the worksheet by clicking “Download the Bonus Resource” below.

    Soon as I began to yearn for working deliberately on my leadership skills, i came acrossed John Maxwell’s talks on Leadership on YouTube. I couldn’t just stop listening…and soon as I also discovered (‘cos his wisdom made me check) he was a man of faith in Christ Jesus, my curiosity on his inspiration source was literally satisfied; I KNEW THE SECRET…and that I was divinely led! For over a month now, I listened to his talks/teachings for some good minutes time, almost everyday! He has been God-sent! May the good Lord continue to strengthen him and his team, grants him more wisdom to reach the world with Christ Jesus in the unique form God’s using him, in Jesus Christ’s name!
