Publisher's Summary

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.

Identify and fix common interpersonal mistakes.

This book is for anyone struggling to break through to the next level or wants to find and fix their flaws. Directed primarily at management or those with high influence.

The book reads like an extended playbook. First triage your challenges. Given the twenty habits listed in the book, your area to improve is likely covered. I like how each one is explained and provided simple steps (not easy) to address then. Using through 360 reviews find the most important habit. Then comes the rollout. Apologize. Gather more feedback. How do you communicate your change? Who should be involved? Sharing your progress and making the impact you need.

This is an easy book to read, but I think will be hard to implement. Change takes time. It does everything to set you up for success and it is your job to take the next step. I am looking forward to reading it again and again as I try to apply the lessons.
