Critic reviews

"Marshall Goldsmith is one of the most credible thought leaders in the new era of business." (The Economist

"For over a decade I have worked with Marshall in corporations and seen him teach. In my opinion, he is the best at what he does, bar none. He has that rare combination that makes a great teacher-thought leadership, classroom management, and presence."

Yes! Do Read it!

I'm so grateful to my friend who told me about this book. After having read it - I think it is a must-read for everybody and not just for those who are involved in managing and leadership.

Very interestingly Marshall Goldsmith talks about 20 most common "bad habit" many CEOs have. I must admit I have found myself guilty in some of those, of course! And also interesting to look around, and see what does other do and don't do: including my peers, my management, senior management.
Most importantly, I liked recommendations and the ideas from the book like the concept of feeding forward and measuring our soft goals.

Yes, recommended !

Excellent insights

I truly enjoyed reading this book.

A friend of mine, moving from a senior manager role, eyeing a COO position, recommended it. He mentioned the profound impact many of the small things he did every day prior to reading the book, and the changes he had made since, as key reasons for his ascent to the COO position.

I’ve picked up on at least a half dozen things I routinely failed to control and am hoping that I also show improvement towards everyone, my family and friends included.

Would highly recommend this book to anyone, for any reason, as we all have room to improve ourselves.

Thank you for writing this book, Marshall.

This was clear, coherent and compelling. I’m hoping to implement some of this next week. Great voice acting. Well written book.
