Kevin Kruse: (audio) Great Leaders Have No Rules

What are the rules of leadership?

When is it okay to break those rules? Are there different rules for those who are not satisfied with simply being a leader, but instead are driven to be great leaders?

On this episode, my guest Kevin Kruse and I break all the rules (including our own podcasting rules). You see, on this episode we simply hit record and had one of our great conversations. You quite literally get to eavesdrop in on two blokes chatting about all things leadership, a conversation that goes way beyond the boardroom.

This episode's guest is a returning champion; Kevin Kruse is the Founder and CEO of LEADx, offering the world’s first leadership trainer and coach, all powered by IBM Watson (AI). Kevin is also a New York Times bestselling author of nine (9) books including his latest: Great Leaders Have No Rules: Contrarian Leadership Principles to Transform Your Team and Business.

On this episode we go FullMonty on so much, including:

  • Our gratitude practices
  • What to say if someone asks you a question you don't understand... (while still looking smart)
  • The danger of devaluing your knowledge
  • Horrible bosses
  • "Assumptive Knowledge"
  • Why you should throw out your "Open Door Policy"
  • Megastars we've both interviewed
  • The pain of writing books (and those who make it harder)
  • How to cope with the "joy stealers" of life
  • Why giving your kids a curfew doesn't work

And so much more!
