Al Pacino yesterday and Barack Obama tomorrow..
I was listening to an interview with Larry King, legendary radio and tv talk show host, where he described how he does an interview.
“I'm totally into you right now. If it was Al Pacino yesterday and Barack Obama tomorrow. I don't think about that. I am just here.”
He listens, then asks open and honest questions.
Mostly, people do not want to be fixed or saved they want to be heard.
Get skin in the game, listen.
