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.

    "Boring Narrator"

    The book might be better than this. I just found the choice of narrator to be incredibly bad and stupid

    "Required Reading for Being Human"
    Would you consider the audio edition of What Got You Here Won't Get You There to be better than the print version?

    No, it's very good as is.


    What other book might you compare What Got You Here Won't Get You There to and why?

    Just Listen because it touches on the same idea that we overestimate our contributions, and can learn much more when we truly listen.


    What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

    Most of the ideas in this book are worth remembering; but one that stands out is our need to win. It's a perspective shift that is important and potentially a game-changer.

    "Insights into executive blind spots - a great guide for coaches"

    In m work as an executive coach, I have found this book to be hugely eye-opening. Many of the themes that I see in my coaching engagements are beautifully and simply described by Marshall in this book. Further, he offers numerous insights around what to do about these leadership challenges, and the best way to interact with clients on these topics.

    To be sure, the reader will see him or her self over and over in these bad habits. One can't help but improve something!

    The narrator's performance was quite good, and I appreciated the humorous undercurrent of the entire work.

    Story
    "Hands-down best managerial book ever!"

    Over the years I have read many books about motivating people producing better teams and different ideas about how to be a successful company. This book gave me more information,better ideas,and more skills then all the other books I've read combined. This book taught me how to listen and pay attention to what my employees are asking for. It's all simple basic stuff . I wish I could afford to have this man to work with me at my company. However I get the feeling he commands a six-figure salary. Anybody who can get a six-figure salary for a part-time job has got to have good ideas. If you can implement just two or three skills that he teaches you in this book you will be a better manager a better boss a better person.

    "Parts are useful, Most Isn't"

    There are some good ideas here, but the author bases a lot of his premises on assumptions that his opinion or personal experience are universally true. So you have to skip those parts and just get to the suggested practices. I would've liked to be able to recommend this to co-workers, but I likely won't. It's just too hit and miss.
