Michael Hyatt was 28 years old when he was sent to a Billy Graham Crusade. Hyatt worked for the exclusive publisher of Billy Graham’s books.

He considered the meeting an extraordinary privilege. He pulled out his list of questions. He never got to ask a single one.

“Mr. Graham pummeled me with questions about my upbringing, my family, and my business. … These were not the questions of an interrogator, but a friend. He laughed easily, and followed up every answer with another query—before I could turn the tables. He never took his eyes off me. He was totally present.

“In 20 minutes, he had an impact on me that would forever change the way I think about leadership.”
