If someone told you they knew the most important skill necessary to achieve success, would you be intrigued?  Sure, you would!  So was I, particularly when I consider that over the years many of us have consciously or unconsciously digested many remedies, both in long-form and “hacks” (if you will) in the pursuit of success.

Through his research, Dr. Wayne Baker, professor of Business Administration at the University of Michigan’s Ross School of Business, has honed on what he believes to be that most critical skill.  During our discussion, he shares his discovery, research, and efforts more broadly and the path individuals and organizations can take to unlock that skill.
