Only a handful of executives will ever reach the pinnacle. Will you be one of them?

It could be that simple “transactional flaws” are leading to negative perceptions from those around you. Join this Webcast to hear Marshall Goldsmith describe how subtle nuances make all the difference in your journey to the top.

Marshall will take you through the trouble with success, outlining how previous accomplishments often prevent you from gaining still more success. And he’ll explore why high achievers are often resistant to change in their approach to interpersonal relationships.

The good news is that these are things that can be easily fixed.

What You Will Learn

Small flaws may sabotage your otherwise golden career. Using Goldsmith's straightforward advice, you’ll discover how to easily fine-tune your behaviors, including:
  • Four key beliefs that make you successful but also resistant to change
  • Why the higher you go, the more your problems are behavioral
  • How to get good 360-degree feedback from your colleagues on your own
  • Why the 21st habit, goal obsession, may be the most destructive of all
  • How to overcome special challenges if you’re the one in charge at the workplace

The discussion will be followed by an interactive session, where we will address specific questions asked by members of the audience!
