Kevin Kruse is the Founder and CEO of LEADx, offering the world’s first leadership trainer and coach powered by IBM Watson. Kevin is also a New York Times bestselling author of nine books including Great Leaders Have No Rules: Contrarian Leadership Principles to Transform Your Team and Business.

What you will learn from this episode:

  • How Kevin first discovered the power of leadership, and how that lesson became the focus of his book Great Leaders Have No Rules
  • Why the ubiquitous “open door policy” actually causes more harm than good, and why “closing your door and opening your calendar” is the key to empowering those you lead
  • How Kevin and his team developed the first AI-powered leadership trainer, Coach Amanda, to help people develop their leadership skills in a conversational way
  • Why every time Kevin wants to start a company, he starts a podcast and then turns the content of the podcast into a book first
  • How being a nine-time bestselling author positions Kevin to be an expert and trusted thought leader, and what strategies he suggests for people wanting to write a book
  • Why Kevin strongly recommends launching a podcast for anyone wanting to move into thought leadership, and what advantages a podcast can allow you to leverage
  • Why focusing on adding value for your audience will help you grow your business exponentially
  • How to use, reuse, and repackage your content to be able to share it across many different channels
  • How Kevin learned to define success not as a number but instead as the freedom to spend his time how he likes
