I’m conducting interviews for my second book and as part of the process, I’m speaking with successful executives and entrepreneurs. During one interview, I asked a question that made the conversation come alive in a way I never expected. The question I asked became not only beneficial for me, but was insightful and powerful for the person I was interviewing.

What was the question? I’ll share it with you because I believe it will make you think and will be insightful for you, too. The question was, “what is the one thing you need to learn in order to lead your company to heightened levels of success?”

The question wasn’t about what the company needed to do, or how their strategy needed to be modified. It was about the individual on the other end of the phone and what they needed to learn as a leader.

The response I heard was “that’s a great question”, followed by “do you mind if I take a minute and think about that?” When I heard this, I knew I’d struck a chord.

What I learned in this interview was powerful on two fronts. It taught me something about what’s important to successful leaders and how I can address that in my book. I also think it can help you, whether you’re a leader or an aspiring leader.
