Success Tools - The Marshall Goldsmith Library

Marshal Goldsmith, a highly successful executive coach, and Author of What Got You Here Won't Get You There: How Successful People Become Even More Successful, was recently featured on the Duct Tape Marketing Podcast. On the podcast, Goldsmith mentioned that he also hosted the Marshal Goldsmith Library. I recently checked it out and it is a treasure trove of executive coaching experience

Goldsmith, whose site contains praise from the CEOs of Ford, Glaxo, McKesson, Allergan, and Goldman Sachs, has assembled a generous collection of materials including a Blog, downloadable articles, Podcasts, Videos, and even links to 39 other Thought Leaders in management coaching including Natahniel Branden, David Allen, and Brian Tracy.

Goldsmith has coached some extremely successful people, and that poses a unique set of challenges: high-level CEO’s and similar figures are already at the top, have done a lot of things really well, and are financially independent. How do you convince them that their arrogance, blindness, self-centeredness, or encouragement of fawning sycophants is about to derail them permanently? Somehow, Goldsmith does it.

Most of us will never be able to afford the 6-figure services of a Fortune 500 executive coach. Marshall Goldsmith generously affords us all the ability to get a lot of his elite counsel for free, on his many linked websites.
