Welcome to the Evolvepreneur (After Hours) Show

I am your Special Host Mechelle McDonald

Join me today where we dig deep with our guests and get you the best concepts and strategies to fast-track your business.

My very special guest today is David Kitchen ...

David Kitchen, a leadership coach and author, believes anyone can become a leader, drawing from his own upbringing and single parent household experience. He sees leadership as rooted in character, not background, and values character and shared vision over skills when hiring. His book underscores linking personal and professional values for a strong business foundation. Kitchen presents a pyramid system for cultivating future leaders through conciliarship, focusing on service, familial treatment of customers, and humble front-facing leadership. His aim is to equip numerous individuals with leadership skills for positive community and personal impact.

Key Moments:

  • Leadership is about being selfless and serving others above yourself. The further up the leadership ladder you climb, the less it is about you as an individual.
  • It's important to connect your personal values and mission to your business values and mission. Your business should be a reflection of who you are as a person.
  • When hiring early employees for your startup, prioritize character, vision, and values over specific skills. Skills can be developed, but character is most important.
  • Surround yourself with people who have different strengths and perspectives from yourself. Balance out your weaknesses by hiring people who think in different ways.
  • Focus on customer retention by truly serving your customers and earning their trust. The more value you provide, the more loyal customers will be.
  • Develop a system for cultivating future leaders within your organization on an ongoing basis. Identify strengths in individuals and put them in positions to develop leadership skills.
  • Connect with people on a human level by sharing your authentic self. People buy from people, not impersonal brands.
  • Get out of your own and your employees' way. Trust that others can accomplish tasks in their own way and style.
  • Implement leadership development methods that have proven effective, rather than constantly reinventing the wheel.
  • At your core, stay focused on serving people and prioritizing human connection over abstract concepts or content.
