Description

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.

Inspirational writeup

This book reveals insights on how to develop #habits that will lead you at the top. most of us get stuck at low levels in the corporate world without thinking or knowing the right move to take in order to get at the next level of the corporate leather. In this book, Marshall Goldsmith exposes us to an intentional way of identifying the wrong things we are doing and how to address them in order to become a better person. He demonstrates how the habits/behaviours and skills that led us to our current status and position are way irrelevant for the next miles of our journey. The most important things to do is getting feedback and feedforward from the people around us and acting upon them.

Well Worth it

Very useful book. Even if you don't implement the full improvement strategy of apologizing and advertising it and following up, the various issues discussed are obviously true once you think about them. As the author says throughout, many of the solutions are simple, though not necessarily easy to implement. I would recommend this to anyone who works in an office environment, not just executives. In fact, the earlier in your career you recognize the issues the author discusses, the more effective you will be.

Good book, but didn't lend to the audio format

I really liked this book and found the content to be valuable. However, more than other audiobooks that I've listened to, I found that this didn't lend itself to the format too well. I often felt like I needed to take notes or look back on a list (which of course wasn't available). The audiobook format left me wanting to get a copy from the library which I could copy a few tables and lists out of. This hasn't been my experience as much with other audio books.

A Must Read for Correcting Hidden or Known Flaws

If you could sum up What Got You Here Won't Get You There in three words, what would they be?

Change!!! And this doesn't mean changing others, it means changing yourself. Marshall Goldsmith shows us how.

What was one of the most memorable moments of What Got You Here Won't Get You There?

Each of us has character flaws, either unknown or known that we refuse to recognize as needing corrected. Change, however, is not only about recognizing what needs to be different about yourself, we need a reason to change, and then the ability to fix the flaw.

What about Marc Cashman’s performance did you like?

He is an excellent reader. He makes you feel that he wrote the book, which is very unusual when listening to an audio book.

What did you learn from What Got You Here Won't Get You There that you would use in your daily life?

Each of us need not only awareness of our faults, but we need the help of others in bringing about change within ourselves.

Any additional comments?

I highly recommend this book as one of the best I have read or listened to on audio for aiding in making all of us better people, parents, spouses, coworkers, or bosses.

Not a "how to" book

The book lists 21 bad behaviors that can stalk an executive's career. The list is not an earth shattering revelation, such as competitive even for trivia matters, desire to add two cents to every conversation, overuse of "no", "but", and "however", inability to praise, and deflecting blame for any wrongdoing. I think the author is probably a good consultant but not a good writer. He uses a lot of sports analogy and sometimes poorly applied, like comparing the gripping of a golf club to listening (I think he was trying to explain how before taking action, you have to pay attention or something... it was just confusing). Also, this book doesn't work well as a "how to" book. The examples he gives are based on his consulting jobs where a 360 evaluation was done for the executive. It's easy for others to see your flaws (such as making sarcastic or negative remarks). They are the victims of your bad behaviors and feel the effects; you don't. Also, many people think and act differently from you. One or two individuals may find your behavior normal, while seven or eight find it annoying. This book is good if you're already considering fixing some of your bad habits. There are tips on how to get feedback from people and stay motivated to improve. If you're stalled in your career and can't figure why, this book won't answer that question.

Brutally Practical Approach to Changing Yourself

Of all the books I have read which address techniques to make me a better person and more effective colleague, this may be close to the best. Marshall applies a brutally practical perspective that anyone who wants to change can benefit from.

Not about 360

I enjoyed the book. For me the value was in hearing Goldsmith talk about annoying & distracting habits, some of which plague me. In listening to his discussion of the habits I learned a few things about myself. Now I can change a few behaviors that may have been annoying others and holding me back.

This should be taught in high school!

Unparalleled material on self improvement in the workforce. The author reminds us that people can't improve on all aspects simultaneously (even though successful people want to get better at everything they do, it's important to follow this rule. Will come back for a 2nd, 3rd and 4th read really soon!

Prompts one to evaluate and change his or her behavior

I like how fast I saw positive results in myself and others by practicing what I learned : for example , sometimes simply responding“thanks” is enough.

Likely useless for you

Author builds the book on top of a few assumptions: 1. The reader is disagreeable and needs to become more agreeable, listening and caring. Obviously false, as there are leaders of all kinds. 2. Removing minor annoyances that hurt how people perceive you would help your career and launch you forward. Obviously false for anyone who worked in big companies - no matter what you do someone would dislike you. Working on how you are perceived (instead of focusing on building professional relationships and delivering results) is just pointless. 3. Being a jerk will hurt your career. This is very intuitively obvious, but false in reality. If you are high performer, nobody cares that you are a jerk. You can scream and humiliate people, cry in meetings, ignore other people's opinions, fire them if you dislike them, and still be considered the best leader in the world. Don't believe me? Don't know who I mean? Read the biography of Steve Jobs. Author admits that he only works with people where his methods would cause big success. He seems to be finding people who are oblivious to major flaws and uses 360 feedback to point those flaws out and turn the person "around". Then he pretends that every leader in the world has this issue and write a book with that assumption. Funny thing is, such people don't read such books.
