Very contemporary ideas and solutions

Suits for people aspiring to get to leadership reins or already holding one. Most of the book deals with very contemporary subtle scenarios at work place and provides common sense solutions.

Voice over can be improved by using different tones. Enacting wud improve the listening experience.

Will have it in my collections for Reference and Re-read few chapters.

Excellent insights

I truly enjoyed reading this book.

A friend of mine, moving from a senior manager role, eyeing a COO position, recommended it. He mentioned the profound impact many of the small things he did every day prior to reading the book, and the changes he had made since, as key reasons for his ascent to the COO position.

I’ve picked up on at least a half dozen things I routinely failed to control and am hoping that I also show improvement towards everyone, my family and friends included.

Would highly recommend this book to anyone, for any reason, as we all have room to improve ourselves.

Thank you for writing this book, Marshall.

Yes! Do Read it!

I'm so grateful to my friend who told me about this book. After having read it - I think it is a must-read for everybody and not just for those who are involved in managing and leadership.

Very interestingly Marshall Goldsmith talks about 20 most common "bad habit" many CEOs have. I must admit I have found myself guilty in some of those, of course! And also interesting to look around, and see what does other do and don't do: including my peers, my management, senior management.
Most importantly, I liked recommendations and the ideas from the book like the concept of feeding forward and measuring our soft goals.

Yes, recommended !

All killer, no filler

So many business/improvement books can be summarised in a short blog post or an infographic. This is the exception. So much gold in this one. An immediate re-listen as soon as I finished. If you need to influence in your life or profession, get this!
