by Marshall Goldsmith - Nov, 2015
For many leaders, especially those just starting out, exhibiting confidence and strength in their role as leader is something that they often tell me they would like to develop. They know, and rightly so, that self-confidence and self-esteem are important qualities of great leaders. Following are seven simple suggestions that I give leaders and potential leaders who want to be collaborative and authentic and at the same tim...
  Why Do We Resist Change?
by Marshall Goldsmith - Nov, 2015
Because we’re deluded! We all delude ourselves about our achievements, our status, and our contributions. We Overestimate our contribution to a project; Have an elevated opinion of our professional skills and standing among our peers; Exaggerate our project’s impact on profitability by discounting real and hidden costs. Many of our delusions come from our association with success, not failure. We get positive reinforcem...
  How Successful People Set Goals and Follow Through
by Marshall Goldsmith - Nov, 2015
The typical advertisement or “infomercial” – designed to help people “get in shape” – provides a great example of what not to do in goal-setting. The message is almost always the same, “For an ‘incredibly small’ amount of money – you can buy a ‘revolutionary’ product – that is ‘unbelievably easy’ and ‘fun to use’. This product will produce ‘amazing results’ ‘in almost no time’ and you will ‘have the body that you always wanted...
  20 Behaviors Even the Most Successful People Need to Stop
by Marshall Goldsmith - Oct, 2015
As a 10-year board member of the Peter Drucker Foundation, I had many opportunities to listen to Peter Drucker, the world’s authority on management. During this time, Peter taught me some very important lessons about life and leadership. One of the greatest lessons he taught me is this: “We spend a lot of time helping leaders learn what to do. We do not spend enough time teaching leaders what to stop. Half of the leaders I...
  3 Indisputable Reasons Why Everyone Needs a Coach!
by Marshall Goldsmith - Oct, 2015
Everyone needs a coach. But, not everyone wants a coach or wants others to know that they need a coach. Some areas welcome coaching. Sports for instance. In sports, we welcome coaching because we need an expert eye correcting our technique, exhorting us to try harder, and reminding us to maintain our poise in the game-day environment of competition. It’s the same in corporate life, where the best leaders function like our f...
  There’s No Shame in Asking for Help!
by Marshall Goldsmith - Oct, 2015
As the author of best-selling “self-help” books, you might be surprised to find that I wholeheartedly believe that if you want to improve your performance at almost anything, your odds of success improve considerably the moment you enlist someone else to help you! Some of us practice this instinctively. We enlist a friend to join us for yoga class or commit to training for a marathon with a group. We enjoy the companionship...
  4 Things Successful Leaders Do to Empower Employees
by Marshall Goldsmith - Aug, 2015
As a manager or leader, do you let your people assume more responsibility when they are able? Do you know when that is, or do you keep telling yourself that they aren’t ready yet? In my travels around the world, I talk with thousands of people every year who want to be treated as “partners” rather than as employees. They want information to flow up as well as down. But, oftentimes, leaders do not want to give up control....
  Simple Ain't Easy!
by Marshall Goldsmith - Aug, 2015
As an executive coach, I’ve been helping successful people achieve positive lasting change in behavior for more than thirty-five years. Most of my clients embrace the opportunity to change, and most are aware of the fact that behavioral change will help them become more effective leaders, partners, and even family members. A few are not. My process of helping clients is straightforward and consistent. I interview and liste...
  What Got You Here Won't Get You There
by Marshall Goldsmith - Aug, 2015
Let’s dive into one of my favorite coaching exercises. This exercise will help you determine where you are and who you want to become. I love this exercise. I hope you do too! First imagine you’re 95 years old. You’re just about to die. You’re given a gift. To go back in time, to this moment and to tell yourself what was really important and what wasn’t, what really mattered and what didn’t. What advice would this wise “old...
  6 Questions that Will Set You Up to Be Super Successful
by Marshall Goldsmith - Jul, 2015
A Little Background When it comes to self-reflection, asking yourself active questions rather than passive questions changes the focus of your answers – and empowers you to make changes you wouldn’t otherwise consider! I learned about active questions from my daughter, Kelly Goldsmith. Kelly has a Ph.D. in behavioral marketing and teaches at Northwestern’s Kellogg School of Management. Yes, I am a proud father! Kelly...
