10 Things That Require Zero Talent... Don't Like It

Have you ever seen that list which gets posted on pages like LinkedIn and Instagram which outlines 10 activities which require zero talent. I’m not a fan. While it is factual, I feel offended by it, as if I need reminding that I must abide by these 10 rules. Moreover it is a horrible list to post in an organization as a reminder to people. I believe all you will accomplish is offending them. Indeed we want our subordinates to live by this list. Instead of drawing it out on a dry erase board or posting it in poster size in the break room, create an environment which motivates people to abide by these rules. Lead and care for them. Set a tone of inclusion and belonging and transparency and you’ll get all that and more.
