What Got You Here Won’t Get You There

by Marshal Goldsmith and Mark Reiter

Successful people are the hardest to convince that they need to change because they are already successful. The corporate world is filled with executives, men and women who are intelligent, skilled, and driven. But only a handful of them will ever reach their full potential. In “What Got You Here Won’t Get You There,” Marshall Goldsmith discusses the key beliefs of successful leaders and also the behaviors that hold them back. He addresses the fundamental problems that come with success and the twenty habits that prevent people from achieving greater levels of success. Goldsmith shares his years of experience in helping top executives change their behavior and improve their interpersonal skills. In “What Got You Here Won’t Get You There,” you’ll learn about the dangers of “winning too much”, adding too much value, refusing to share information, and taking too much credit for results. Using Goldsmith’s straightforward, jargon free advice, anyone will benefit from this book, whether new manager or a rising senior executive.
