Marshall Goldsmith isn't a Goodreads Author (yet), but they do have a blog, so here are some recent posts imported from their feed.

Managing today's highly skilled professionals takes special skills — and not the ones that you may think. Oftentimes, knowledge workers know more than you do about their jobs. So, how do you manage people who know more about what they do than you do?



In such instances, you have to look at leadership through the wants and needs of the worker as opposed to the skills of the leader. Here are some q...

“Mojo” is, “That positive spirit toward what we are doing now, that starts from the inside and radiates to the outside”
Marshall Goldsmith, Mojo: How to Get It, How to Keep It, How to Get It Back If You Lose It

“A leader who cannot shoulder the blame is not someone we will follow blindly into battle. We instinctively question that individual’s character, dependability, and loyalty to us. And so we hold back on our loyalty to him or her.”
Marshall Goldsmith, What Got You Here Won't Get You There: How Successful People Become Even More Successful

“With chapter headings that sound more like song titles on a children’s CD than true-to-life anecdotes to today’s business woes, Puttin’ Cologne on the Rickshaw humorously and cleverly describes some of the pitfalls of being in the corporate world, then helps its readers learn how to do things differently.

In Puttin’ Cologne on the Rickshaw, William Bouffard hilariously describes his 40+ years of suffering a plethora of “idiotic workplace behavior.” Not one to leave his readers stuck “waiting for rigor mortis” or “drinkin’ Kool Aid,” Bouffard then outlines how we can all take action and do things differently for our own professional and personal sanity and success.

If doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results is the definition of insanity, then William Bouffard certainly is an expert at being “crazy.” Yet the author extricated himself from the psychiatric ward of corporate evil and helps us each learn how we can too.”
