Publisher's Summary

What's holding you back? Your hard work is paying off. You are doing well in your field. But there is something standing between you and the next level of achievement. Perhaps one small flaw, a behavior you barely even recognize, is the only thing that's keeping you from where you want to be.

Who can help? Marshall Goldsmith is an expert at helping global leaders overcome their (sometimes unconscious) annoying habits and attaining a higher level of success. His one-on-one coaching comes with a six-figure price tag. But with this audiobook, you'll get Marshall's great advice without the hefty fee!

What is the solution? The Harvard Business Review asked Goldsmith, "What is the most common problem faced by the executives that you coach?" Inside, he answers this question by discussing not only the key beliefs of successful leaders, but also the behaviors that hold them back. He addresses the fundamental problems that often come with success and offers ways to attack them. Goldsmith outlines 20 habits commonly found in the corporate environment and provides a systematic approach to helping executives achieve a positive change in behavior.

    "Enlightening Book"

    One of the best books for personal development. Encourages a reflective approach to analyzing our strengths but more importantly our weaknesses. Self-assessment and taking responsibility for our own actions are keys to improvement.

    "A must read"

    Excellent breakdown of the shortfalls of a strong leader. Reminds me of the "rinsing the cottage cheese" from good to great. This book helps even the most dynamic leader find ways to improve themselves.

    "Helps you take a good look in the mirror"

    This book is all about examining yourself so that you can be a better person and influence positive change in those around you. I highly recommend this book to anyone who has achieved a level of success and may have become stagnant - this book may very well be your answer as to why.

    "What got him there seemed to get him here"

    I wish the author practiced what he preached. Seems that he's very proud of his past - and he should be as it is amazing. However if you're telling me that what got me here won't get me there - you can't use your past yourself. Especially distant past.

    "The title is the whole story"

    This book should have been 1/3 the length. In fact the title was the major premise, and much of the book was filler material.
