When Marshall Goldsmith asked if I’d post my review of his book, “What Got You Here Won’t Get You There: How Successful People Become Even More Successful“ of course I was flattered after all, HE is MARSHALL GOLDSMITH, the executive coach to some of the Top 50 most successful CEO’s in the world.
And since Mr. Goldsmith had just endorsed a book I’ve co-authored, it was a no-brainer x2.
However, it took me a while to write my honest opinion … you can read it here.

“What Got You Here Won’t Get You There …” Marshall Goldsmith, Executive Coach to the Top Fortune 50 Companies says the technical knowledge, bottom line focus and sometimes ruthless strategies that got you promoted to Senior Leader level WON’T guarantee success in your new position, and most likely WON’T get you promoted to the next level.
In fact, the communication, relationship (yes, I said relationship) and interpersonal leadership skills to successfully motivate your team and to build an exceptional company that you need to excel here or there is another skill set entirely.
While Emotional and Social Intelligence are the key ingredients of outstanding CEO’s, odds are your MBA program or weekend Leadership Training won’t give you the depth and breadth you need to go beyond “knowing” the skills to “doing” and “being” a Sustainable Leader who is built to last from the inside out.
