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.

    Story
    "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.

    "Great information too long"

    You would think that it wouldn't be that complicated to be more effective. Apparently it is. It might be good to read this book in short segments.

    Story
    "Ultimately, interpersonal skills define success."

    At some point, business leaders are promoted based not upon their particular skills set but based upon their interpersonal skills. This may detrimentally affect their professional aspirations whether it be financial or otherwise. Highly recommended book for those interested in becoming mindful of how they are perceived by others in a business environment, including what to do improve, and in successfully communicating that improvement, which may take time.

    "Let's get there"

    What a trip; you can relate to as little or as much as you allow, not only for yourself but as a leader of others.
