    2. There is so much good stuff in here. I particularly like te 20 habits section as, although they are common sense things, they all need to be brought up again and again.The thrust of the book is all about how, as a successful person, you can go to the next level. It also points out how these destructive behaviors don't hold you back until you get to a certain level in a company, then they become a problem. Some of the points are well made and insightful. So far (having not finished it yet) the bi [...]

    3. Where do you want/need to go? Do you have a plan to get there?If not, or ifyour lack of planning has always been a source of anxiety for you, may I suggest you pick up Marshall Goldsmith’s newest book, "What Got You Here Won’t Get You There?"? The book contains 20 habits that hold you back (from getting “there”, remember?) as well as a plethora of other bejewelled nuggets such as how you can change for the better. Here are some of my biggest takeaways which relate to everyone, not just t [...]

    4. If you made it to the executive suite and you're a gigantic asshole, congratulations! This book is just for you. Marshall Goldsmith will be happy to get paid good money to teach you how to pretend that you're not an immature ego-maniac.Anyone else: steer away, far away. Also, something else about biz books in general: too often they bear titles that promise great depths of analysis and solutions, but once you get through them you realize they are either an ego-trip by the author (what I have don [...]

    5. Copied-and-pasted summary:1. Winning too much: the need to win at all costs and in all situations - when it matters, when it doesn't, and when it's totally beside the point.2. Adding value: the overwhelming desire to add our two cents to every discussion.3. Passing judgment: the need to rate others and impose our standards on them.4. Making destructive comments: the needless sarcasms and cutting remarks that we think make us sound sharp and witty.5. Starting with "No," "But," or "However": the o [...]

    7. This was the first book I have read written by Marshall Goldsmith, and it most certainly will not be the last. From its title one could think that this is one of those fluffy motivational “change yourself overnight” books. In reality it is anything but that, it’s a grounded and well written book that focuses on the problems which come from moving up the leadership ladder while still retaining old habits.As the title indicates, the very qualities that get people promoted and make them succe [...]

    8. Pros: Solid content. What Goldsmith says makes sense. His "Twenty Habits That Hold You Back" are a great list of things everyone should stop doing. Similarly, his fixes - "How We Can Change for the Better" - are practical, worthwhile and beneficial.Cons: Reliance on personal experience and anecdotes to the point of solipsism; a skewed view of human behavior that favors extrinsic motivators (power, money, status, popularity, legacy, rewards, etc) over intrinsic ones (purpose, autonomy, mastery); [...]

    9. Really? You couldn't have told me all this in like 10 pages. I felt like he kept saying the same thing over, and over, and over again. Commonsense 101, how unfortunate that we live in a society that has to write a book to tell people you should send a thank you note. Isn't that a sweet little lesson grandma's teach you when your four?

    10. One of the best non-fiction books I have read off late.Read this book if you want to identify the blind spots in your behavior which might sabotage your own career at some point of time.

    11. كثيراً ما نخدع أنفسنا فيما يتعلق بإنجازاتنا ودورنا في العمل حين ننحو إلى المبالغة في تقدير إسهاماتنا في أي مشروع. ننسب الفضل جزئياً أو كلياً لأنفسنا في نجاحات ترجع في الحقيقة إلى غيرنا. نمتلك تقديراً عالياً لمهاراتنا المهنية ووضعنا بين زملائنا. وبكل بساطة ودون تردد نتجاهل أ [...]

    12. A more accurate subtitle might be ”Just Be Nice”. Apparently getting to the corner office on the top floor just requires much of what your kindergarten teacher tried to impart on you: listen to people, say ”please” and ”thank you” and always use your inside voice. Goldsmith and Reiter claim these principles are gleamed from hundreds of coaching sessions with CEO’s and their direct reports. Where are these magical companies where nice guys finish first and what do they manufacture? [...]

    13. This is a book for those that are already 'successful' (by your own definition), so it may not be for everyone. Things that I learned:- You will need help from others to become a better person. You are not a good judge for your self improvements.- The ones that can validate your improvement is your peers or colleagues.- Even the most successful people can still improve themselves by using feedback from other people.

    14. I cannot express adequately how much I enjoyed this book! Because at first glance, this books seems directed toward those in corporate or business work, initially I can understand why those not in those fields (like myself: a housewife, mother) wonder if it would be a beneficial expense of time. But it totally is! Why? We are all traveling down a road toward something (being a better ____ [mother, wife, financier, teacher, person]. And we all need to improve. So wherever you are in life, if you [...]

    15. In his inimitable style, Marshall Goldsmith proves why he's one of the most sought after coaches and practitioners in the world. He uses anecdotes and real-life stories to drive home his point about the bad habits we all collect, on the way to being more successful.And those bad habits tend to restrict our success (unless we happen to be dictators of mid-sized nations, or a phenomenon like Steve Jobs, or an inexplicable creature like Donald Trump)Marshall also provides insights into what we can [...]

    17. Second Review - graphic novel version - 4 stars - 31st Dec 2016My work role has now changed and as a senior person within a different organisation this book is a bit more relevant. I enjoyed this graphic novel version. It acts as a summary of the key points in the written version and is a very helpful aide memoir. It is a quick easy to read version. I read it to help me reflect on my work as a leader of others and to see how and whether I embrace some of the unhelpful habits. This time round I f [...]

    18. Why do I keep consuming business books when I generally find them so unfulfilling? Yes, this book was on the dry side, and since I have no desire to go into "management" or any kind of leadership I do wonder if it was a waste of my time. Still, for the genre, this book was better than most.Most "leadership" oriented books seem to be all about pep-talking people into having more confidence. This books is written by a guy who works with people who are already successful, and are heading to even hi [...]

    19. I like practical thoughts from business dudes. They help me keep thinking about how to lead. Goldsmith is helping people not just succeed at being skilled, but succeed at relating well -- that is key to making something worthwhile happen. Kind of a "duh!" -- but it is amazing what we don't think about, once we are in the habits of being jerks.

    20. Excellent read for any leader. Critical insights about your own behavior and how it affects those who work with you.

    21. This book joins High Output Management as most influential management books I've read. What a gem with 10s of incredibly practical ideas that I'm eager to start incorporating. Without a doubt will enter my re-read list.

    22. I was kinda amazed at how dysfunctional the people serving as examples in this book were. ‘How can anybody be such a terrible person?’ I thought. But a quick glance into any company would underline the point the author makes, most of us can be that bad without even realizing it ourselves.The book does a decent enough job of addressing the personal qualities that you need to improve. It is slightly dated and heavily corporate but still one of the better coach-in-a-books you are going to find. [...]

    24. Is success is the greatest barrier to success? Maybe. It's easier to believe that our success is the results of intellect, technical abilities and good old tenacity -- the whole boot straps thing, right? The American way. This book exposes an unpleasant truth. Often times our success depends how well we work with superiors, subordinates and peers. And not always even how we work with them, but how they perceiveus. This book is not for the faint of heart. From the opening pages, I was incredibly [...]

    25. A fair amount of value in here, a bit of introspection and communication improvements can never go astray especially if you understand you are ironing out a few barriers to next level growth and success.

    26. This book is filled with a lot of wisdom and very practical advice. Ask people who know you, really know you, especially at work, to help you identify where you have glaring faults. Then don't judge or criticize their responses. Just say thank you. Acknowledge you need to grow, advertise it, apologize for it, and commit for 12-18 months to get betteren you can listen, learn, and grow. One piece of advice I particularly liked was when he prescribed asking for feedforward, as opposed to feedback. [...]

    29. Surprisingly useful, IMHO. This is useful to a wide range of people, with professional and personal applications, but it really addresses the issues that face people who are near the top of their game. Goldsmith points out that we ALL have issues, and he makes the range of issues painfully clear.Do you take credit for what other people do? Do you share enough information? Do you say thank you? Are you too focused on the goal? No doubt, you're fine on these. That's ok; there are 17 more where the [...]

    30. One of the blurbs on the back cover of the book quotes WSJ saying that Marshall Goldsmith is the #1 executive coach who charges a six figure dollar fee for his coaching services and that we can get that same advice for 20-odd dollars. Believe me, it's true.This book is a must-read for any person holding positions of authority (leaders) who have tasted success in life. The same qualities that gave us success become roadblocks for moving to the next level, and blind us to our bad habits.The author [...]
