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.

    "Excellent, simple insights into change"

    Marshall Goldsmith is an engaging, facinating speaker and his personality shows through nicely in this audiobook. His technique of picking one bad habit to change and following up month after month is very effective. I am using his techniques in my life and in my office and am very happy with the results.

    "Very Worthwhile"

    I found this to be very useful. As it turns out, I am one of those people who may come across as being arrogant. I think many of us can see ourselves in the 20 bad habits he documents. To get this kind of information in a corporate setting would cost thousands. This book has caused me to think...which is the highest accolade I can give.

    "Rev"

    This book is most suitable for individuals who are already successful and have issues such as arrogance, not complimenting others and/or over-confidence. Not an inspirational read-like I was hoping it would be.

    "There is a reason this is on sale."

    Considering how accomplished Marshall Goldsmith is, you'd think he would be self aware enough not to be the reader of his own book. This arrogant, abusive tirade is better suited for a military training camp. "The only things that come from Texas are Steers and ....."

    "Interesting , useful but also a bit repetitive"

    This book is full of insights about The soft skills executives need to work on to become leaders that bring the best of their teams.
    I found myself guilty of some faults mentioned: not listening with my full attention, trying to win in any matter (even if it didn't matter really ) And "adding too much value" (giving too many suggestions instead of letting The team do their original ideas).
    The only issue is after The first half it becomes a bit repetitive And some examples Are a bit shallow.

    "Great Wake Up Call!!!"
    If you could sum up What Got You Here Won't Get You There in three words, what would they be?

    Things we already know we should be doing but dont. Great book to refocus oneself.

    "Good Book"
    Would you try another book from Marshall Goldsmith and Mark Reiter and/or Marshall Goldsmith?

    Yes, I enjoyed the book and took away a lot from it. I enjoyed him not only sharing the stories of his clients but his life events that we can all relate to.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Marshall Goldsmith and Mark Reiter again?

    Yes
