Marshall Goldsmith made his name as an executive coach by helping great leaders to become even better. He got involved in coaching by accident, after talking to a CEO about an employee who didn’t seem to fit and now works with executives in depth to understand themselves and their organisations from all angles. He pioneered the use of 360 degree feedback to bring about positive change.

His books – over 32 of them – have sold in their millions and have won countless awards. The highly acclaimed, What Got You Here Won’t Get You There, helped leaders to identify the things that were holding them back and was named the Wall St Journal’s number 1 Business Book of the year and the winner of the Harold Longman Best Business Book award. Other books include Mojo which is about creating motivation and meaning at work and Succession about the dynamics of letting go.

He is considered to be one of the founding fathers of executive coaching and was already being ranked as one of the top ten executive educators in the Wall Street Journal in 1993.

He is the co-founder of his is own coaching firm the Marshall Goldsmith Group. He has featured in profiles in The New Yorker, Harvard Business Review, Interview and Forbes and he has been presented with awards and accolades from almost every professional organisation in his field. Most of his work is available free of charge at the Marshall Goldsmith Library
