It was a crisp autumn evening when I drove to the radio station in Columbus for an interview. Not knowing what to expect or where the questions would take us, I decided to just enjoy the experience.
My interviewer was Maureen Metcalf. With her extensive knowledge of leadership, she made the process enjoyable with insightful questions and a great conversation. In addition to her role as CEO of Metcalf & Associates, Maureen is the host of VoiceAmerica, an international radio show focusing on innovative leadership. She also writes about leadership and organizational transformation for Forbes.com.

My upcoming book, The Book of Mistakes: 9 Secrets to Creating a Successful Future.
- Why we self-sabotage
- Why a book about mistakes
- How to define the competition so you can win
- The difference between success and failure
- The power of self-talk
