Publisher's Summary

In business, the right behaviors matter. But getting it right is tricky. Even when we acknowledge the need to change what we do and how we do it, life has a habit of getting in the way, upsetting even the best-laid plans. And just how do we manage those situations that can provoke even the most rational among us into behaving in ways we would rather forget?
Triggers confronts head on the challenges of behavior and change, looking at the external factors (or "triggers") - both negative and positive - that affect our behaviors, our awareness of when we need to change, our willingness (or otherwise) to do so, and our ability to see the change through. Drawing on his unparalleled experience as an international executive educator and coach, Marshall Goldsmith invites us to understand how our own beliefs and the environments in which we operate can trigger negative behaviors or a resistance to the need to change. But he also offers up some simple, practical advice to help us navigate the negative and make the most of the triggers that will help us to sustain positive change.

I wish everyone could read this book!

I've listened to this book twice now. Probably the best book on adult behavior change I've read. After reading books like Switch, The Power of Habit and Change or Die, which were great prerequisites that shaped my mind concerning the our behavior, Mr. Goldsmith really nails the concepts associated with the impact of our environment on our habits and reactions to triggers. This book is definitely moving to the required list for my management team. Thanks, Marshall for your insights!

He Doesn't Disappoint

I love Marshall Goldmith's book "What Got You Here, Won't Get You There" and I've talked about it for years. In much the same vein, he ups the ante with this book in building on those core skills and behavior modifications.

The key to this book is being open to change. There's no point in investing your time in something you will not do. And knowing is not the same thing as doing. He is truly the best kind of coach - helping us to define our own personal goals and then helping us to change our mindset and back up our commitment to change with real skills.

This is not magic. It's simple, but not easy. I know this is another book I will listen to again multiple times and recommend to many people. We have within us what we need to love a happier and more fulfilling life on our own terms. Marshall Goldsmith is a wonderful guide to making the most out of our individual life journeys.

Fantastic

I missed the junction on the motorway twice whilst listening to this, first in one direction, then the other. So many lightbulb moments that have made shifts in thinking and behaviour for me. Probably the best business book I have read to date. Maybe don't listen whilst driving, unless you don't mind being late!
