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 attain a higher level of success. His one-on-one coaching comes with a six-figure price tag. But, in this audiobook, you 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 these problems. Goldsmith outlines twenty habits commonly found in the corporate environment and provides a systematic approach to helping you achieve a positive change in behavior.

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Patricia | 2/17/2014

    " Very helpful book that was given to me recently after attending Marshall Goldsmith's seminar in Woodbridge NJ. The lessons in the book actually help you with your own annoying habits and flaws. One of the lessons is that when you ask someone for advice, then just say thank you instead of answering "but" or "however". He also says that you should "BE HAPPY NOW" and "not hold on to your anger". The guy is a Buddhist. The lecture and the book will help me be a better person. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sam | 2/17/2014

    " Good read. We all have blind spots about our own behavior. We all do annoying stuff. This book is a great way to go through a self-examination of your personal habits that may be keeping you back from the success you could otherwise attain. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Tara | 2/12/2014

    " I gained a little from it. Not necessarily anything I didn't know, but it rephrased what I knew... I guess. There's a chapter that summarizes everything and you can just read that to get the point. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jacob | 2/2/2014

    " Wonderful read. I took a lot of valuable lessons from this book. I like the premise that even the very successful among can often have significant behavior problems that hold us back. I learned a lot about the power of feedback and the impact of a sincere apology. I would recommend this book to anyone. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sheyla | 1/31/2014

    " I'm not a manager yet, however there are a few lessons that I learned from this book. One was that you can never let the past be buggin; whatever happen to you learn from it, apologize for what you did wrong and learn to move foward... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bing | 1/29/2014
