Toggle Synopsis

Your hard work is paying off. You're doing well in your field. But you can't escape the nagging feeling that something's holding you back. Something's stopping you from getting to the next level. The strangest thing is that you're still doing everything that got you this far.

Marshall Goldsmith is here to help. One of the world's preeminent executive coaches, his one-on-one training normally comes with a six-figure price tag. Now you can get the benefit of his advice without the hefty fee.

This book will show you how the habits which have brought you success — are now delaying your progress. You're succeeding in spite of them, not because of them. With Marshall's unique systematic approach — his tried-and-tested 'to-stop' list — you'll free yourself to drive onwards and upwards.

A fairly OK book, that covers the expected bases and sometimes even makes you think a little bit extra.

Not revolutionary, but absolutely worth reading.
