Ten great work characteristics that require absolutely ZERO talent

Things that require zero talent

Sam Russell

By: Sam Russell – March 2016

Many of the technical and commercial skills that are needed to perform well at work require money, training, experience, effort, talent, and/or considerable time to achieve.

However, as a meme I recently saw on Facebook pointed out, there’s a good number of social (or ‘soft’) skills that require absolutely no training, very little effort, and zero talent.

Imagine what an amazing workplace culture we’d all enjoy if we could get the entire organisation to embrace these simple traits!

  1. Being on time
  2. Work ethic
  3. Effort
  4. Body language
  5. Energy
  6. Attitude
  7. Passion
  8. Being coachable
  9. Doing extra
  10. Being prepared
