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.

Well Worth it

Very useful book. Even if you don't implement the full improvement strategy of apologizing and advertising it and following up, the various issues discussed are obviously true once you think about them. As the author says throughout, many of the solutions are simple, though not necessarily easy to implement. I would recommend this to anyone who works in an office environment, not just executives. In fact, the earlier in your career you recognize the issues the author discusses, the more effective you will be.

Good book, but didn't lend to the audio format

I really liked this book and found the content to be valuable. However, more than other audiobooks that I've listened to, I found that this didn't lend itself to the format too well. I often felt like I needed to take notes or look back on a list (which of course wasn't available). The audiobook format left me wanting to get a copy from the library which I could copy a few tables and lists out of. This hasn't been my experience as much with other audio books.
