5 transitions great leaders make that average leaders don't
The secret to leadership is there aren't any real secrets. The best leaders have simply gone to school on improving their tradecraft. While the capabilities possessed by the best leaders might seem otherworldly to many, they are merely the outcome of hard work, experience, perspective, and yes, a bit of luck. The best leaders have just learned to make certain transitions that less effective leaders curiously remain blind to.

Put customers at the center of your organization
While a lot of what it takes to turn a company around is focused inward — from improving operations to repairing the balance sheet — it's essential for leaders taking their organizations through significant change to place equal emphasis on the customer. In fact, losing sight of the customer and insulating yourself from what is happening outside your company's walls is one of the primary reasons businesses stumble in the first place.

Ask great questions: Leadership skills of Socrates
Building a successful venture means consistently making good decisions. The question is how to become great at making good decisions. The answer is to look to Socrates. This ancient philosopher holds the key to an essential leadership skill: ask great questions. The challenge is that too few leaders, managers and employees ask great questions. This is a big problem. Cultures that embrace a culture of questioning thrive and those that fear it either fail or are doomed to mediocrity.
