  • It's Not About Me, It's About The Job
    by Marshall Goldsmith - September 17, 2018
    My great friend, Chris Cuomo, journalist and news anchor on CNN’s Cuomo Prime Time, has some ideas about a concept I use in my coaching. I call it “showtime.” What it means to me is exemplified by some of the greatest leaders I’ve ever met. These great leaders show up rain or shine.

  • 11 Guidelines for Influencing Top Decision Makers
    by Marshall Goldsmith - September 12, 2018
    “The great majority of people tend to focus downward. They are occupied with efforts rather than results.

  • You Can't Coach the Uncoachables
    by Marshall Goldsmith - June 12, 2018
    Even if you are the best coach in the world, if the person you are coaching shouldn’t be coached, the coaching isn’t going to work. My friend Chris Coffey, who along with Frank Wagner, leads the Stakeholder Centered Coaching® certification in the U.S. and has trained thousands of coaches himself, understands this and it is one of the first things he teaches in every workshop. He puts it to his students very sim...

    Our environment is full of triggers! Smells, sounds, sights barrage us constantly and can affect our actions in both our personal and professional lives.
