Dr. Marshall Goldsmith on Developing on Yourself, Your People and Team

Marshall Goldsmith

CII Chennai chapter organised an interaction with Dr. Marshall Goldsmith, World renowned Leadership thinker and author of best selling books like ‘MOJO’ and What Got You Here Won’t Get You There. It was a lively session with lots of exercises and participation from the attendees. I found Dr. Marshall Goldsmith quick witted and extremely humorous.  Here are some of the highlights from his talk

Great is the need for student to learn, greater is the need for teacher to teach

Great achiever is all about me, great leader is all about them

If we say great, but… to the people we love, we send a message that there is no great

Four words to be a better person, help more judge less

Once you go up the ladder, your suggestions become orders

Classical challenges of successful leaders are adding too much value, telling the world how wonderful we really are, passing too much judgment and winning too much

Over-committed is one of the most common problems of successful leaders

More successful people are more committed

Every time we get promoted, two things happen, we get more power and we get more freedom

Peter Drucker once said, we spend lot of time thinking what leaders want to do, but never discuss what leaders should stop doing.
