Triggers by Marshall Goldsmith


Triggers has been listed as the #1 Bestselling Business Book for July in the New York Times and is the Nielsen BookScan #1 Bestselling Hardcover Management and Leadership Book in America of all books published in the first six months of 2015. Bestselling author and one of the world's foremost executive coaches, Marshall Goldsmith examines the emotional and psychological triggers that cause us to react and behave in certain preset, often inappropriate ways at work and in life. TRIGGERS: Creating Behavior That Lasts—Becoming the Person You Want to Be (Crown Business; May 2015) shows us how to break that cycle and enact meaningful change. Over the course of the book, Marshall explores the power of active questions to get us to take responsibility for our actions—and our failure to act.


Mojo: How to Get It, How to Keep It, and How to Get It Back When You Lose It!


MOJO was listed at #19 bestseller on the INC Magazine / CEO Read list of business bestsellers for 2011. This is the second year in a row that it has been in the top twenty.

MOJO is the moment when we feel we’re ‘on a roll’, firing on all cylinders, and everyone around us senses it. When we’re moving forward, making progress, achieving goals, clearing hurdles, passing the competition—and doing so with increasing ease. Sports people call this being “in the zone;” others describe it as “flow.” Marshall describes it as MOJO --“that positive spirit toward what we are doing now that starts from the inside and radiates to the outside.”

MOJO plays a vital role in our pursuit of happiness and meaning because it is about achieving two simple goals: loving what we do and showing it. And it becomes apparent when the positive feelings toward what we are doing come from inside us and are evident for others to see. In other words, it is the moment when there’s no gap between the positive way we perceive ourselves—what we are doing—and how we are perceived by others.


Learn Like a Leader


Each year, a group of bestselling authors, thought leaders and management experts-among them James Collins, Warren Bennis and David Ulrich-meet to share their defining moments on leadership with one another. As this annual meeting of the minds became a tradition, one theme quickly emerged: great leaders seize the opportunity to learn, over and over again. These remarkable stories form the basis of Learn Like a Leader, a close look at why some people are able to grow in their careers, overcome setbacks and soar to the top, whereas others never fully reach their potential. The book offers powerful lessons reflecting key learning moments in the lives and careers of each of the contributors. Learn Like a Leader portrays the power of storytelling in teaching, training and mentoring.


AMA Handbook of Leadership


In a challenging business climate, enterprises look to their leaders. Some situations call for drastic change, while others require the fortitude to stay the course. Who better to help today's leaders than a who's who of the greatest leadership thinkers of our time? The AMA Handbook of Leadership features insights from best-of-the-best thought leaders and executive leadership coaches around the world, covering a wide range of leadership challenges such as sustainability, competitive advantage through leadership, leading across cultures, succession, and other issues critical to current and future business leaders.



What Got You Here Won't Get You There ... in Sales

To paraphrase Peter Drucker; we spend a lot of time teaching people what to do…we don’t spend enough time teaching people what to stop doing. In What Got You Here Won’t Get You There…in Sales! we offer a surprisingly familiar compilation of what we all do at one time or another to turn off our customers…our friends…even our loved ones – a list of what we unconsciously do to destroy instead of nurture the human connection between customer and company.

We can change all this. Get out a notepad. Instead of your usual “To-Do” list, start your “To-Stop” list. Ask yourself, “What am I willing to change right now?” Just do that… it’s more than enough – and we will show you how!


Succession Are You Ready by Marshall Goldsmith


Marshall Goldsmith’s recent book, Succession: Are You Ready? is the latest addition to the Harvard Business ‘Memo to the CEO’ series.

This book is written in the form of a series of memos to the CEO of a major company, and delves into the human side of the executive succession process. Dr. Goldsmith builds upon his 31 years of experience as an executive advisor to the world’s leading corporations and shares ‘real world’ examples of the challenges and opportunities in top management transition. While the book is written as letters to a fictional CEO, the learnings apply to leaders at all levels – who are faced with the prospect of either letting go or developing their successor.

Marshall's book "What Got You Here Won't Get You There" is a New York Times bestseller and Wall Street Journal #1 business book.

What Got You Here Won’t Get You There was the #2 bestseller on the INC Magazine / CEO Read list of business bestsellers for 2011.

This is the fifth year in a row that What Got You Here Won’t Get You There was in the top ten.

Also: #1 English language business book in Germany!

"Marshall's proven improvement process ROCKS!"

Alan Mulally, CEO, Ford Motor Company

"To Marshall Goldsmith: Thank You for Writing This Book (And We're Not Sucking Up):

Marshall Goldsmith is one of the most successful of corporate America's celebrity coaches -- he typically makes upwards of a quarter-million dollars for a year or so of work with each individual client -- and is also one of the best. ... The beauty of Goldsmith's approach lies not just in the simplicity of his insights, but also in the clarity of his advice. ... Goldsmith has written a leadership manual that could double as a guide to good parenting and marital peace."


"A frequent interviewee in major business magazines like Fortune, Goldsmith [is] soon slated for bestsellerdom. His steps in coaching for success are simple, honest, without artifice. . . . These are words and processes anyone will benefit from, whether wannabe manager or senior executive."
