I first heard of Marshall Goldsmith when business school leadership class assigned reading the New Yorker article about him in 2005. He became one of my most influential mentors since I met him in person shortly after. His insight and advice have been insightful and incisive—what best friends tell you because casual acquaintances are too nervous to—but simple and actionable.
This podcast’s practice of leading and influencing people through simple (not always easy) action, not by authority or expecting giving facts to influence behavior, owes a lot to Marshall.
We talked about leadership, influence, values, and more. Marshall’s advice and views merit listening multiple times to learn from and implement.
