5 Essential Marshall Goldsmith Books on Leadership and Success

World-renowned business educator, coach, and author, Dr. Marshall Goldsmith is well-known for his practical, no-nonsense proven methods in the leadership field. He helps leaders and other professionals overcome the behaviors and thought patterns that often limits their success.

We have selected five of Goldsmith’s most acclaimed books on leadership and success that can help inspire you and grow. Enjoy!

#1 What Got You Here Won’t Get You There

With the subtitle “How Successful People Become Even More Successful”, Goldsmith’s most well-known and internationally acclaimed book offers the reader a guide on how to climb the professional ladder and reach the very top. According to Goldsmith, it is often the subtle things that makes the difference when it comes to who will reach the top levels of management in a business. This book wants to help you make those behavior changes and become even more successful in your job.

#2 Mojo: How to Get It, How to Keep It, How to Get It Back If You Lose It

“Mojo is the moment when we do something that’s purposeful, powerful, and positive and the rest of the world recognizes it.”

In this inspiring book, Goldsmith shares the ways in which to get (and keep) our Mojo. Mojo is helpful in both your professional life as well as your personal, as it gives you a sense of success and happiness that drives you to achieve more. The book provides you with 14 tools to help you achieve both happiness and meaning – not only in business, but in life.

#3 Triggers: Creating Behavior That Lasts – Becoming the Person You Want to Be

Next on the list is Triggers – a truly insightful book where Goldsmith dives into the environmental and psychological triggers that can derail us at work and in life. Triggers are all around us. A beep from your phone distracts you from being in the present, a car in front of you cuts you off and you lose your temper, or a colleague at work says just the wrong thing to make you irritated.

Our reactions are usually the result of triggers in our environment – but we have a choice in how we respond to the trigger. In Triggers, Goldsmith shows how we can overcome the trigger points in our lives, implement new habits, and make it stick.

#4 Work is Love Made Visible: A Collection of Essays About the Power of Finding Your Purpose From the World’s Greatest Thought Leaders

In Work is Love Made Visible, some of the world’s greatest thought leaders gives insight to life’s most difficult task: finding purpose. In a collection of essays, we learn about all of the experiences, failures, inspirations, and motivations of world-renowned thought leaders in their personal journey of finding purpose and meaning in their lives.

Work is Love Made Visible shows you how some of them have succeeded and offers you inspiration and guidance so that you can do the same.

#5 How Women Rise

After writing his international bestseller, What Got You Here Won’t Get You There, Goldsmith realized that although the habits and advice he wrote about in the book applied to both men and women, it was important to acknowledge the different challenges that specifically women face in terms of advancing their careers, and the deep-rooted  habits that are often holding them back.

Therefore, he partnered with his colleague, women’s leadership expert Sally Helgesen, to create a book for women that focuses on how to take the next step in their careers. How Women Rise outlines 12 habits that are holding women back from getting that next raise, promotion, or job – and how to break them!
