Top 6 Quotes On Leadership by Marshall Goldsmith


Baby Boomer Marshall Goldsmith 214x300 Top 6 Quotes On Leadership by Marshall Goldsmith

“Truly great leaders, recognize how silly it is to believe that a coach or a leader is the key to an organization’s success. The best leaders understand that long-term results are created by all of the great people doing the work — not just the one person who has the privilege of being at the top.”

“Successful people tend to have a high need for self-determination. In other words, the more leaders commit to coaching and behavioral change because they believe in the value of the process, the more likely the process is to work. The more they feel that the change is being imposed upon them–or that they are just trying it out–the less likely the coaching process is to work.”

“The great Western Disease lies in the phrase, “I will be happy when…”

“Managers often confuse two terms that appear to be synonymous but are actually quite different: simple and easy. We want to believe that once we understand a simple concept, it will be easy to execute a plan and achieve results. If this were true, everyone who understood that they should eat a healthy diet and exercise regularly would be in shape. Our challenge for getting in shape–as well as changing leadership behavior–is not understanding, it is doing!”

“For most leaders, the great challenge is not understanding the practice of leadership: It is practicing their understanding of leadership.”

“So many people have spent a lifetime for preparing themselves for technological skills yet have spent no time training themselves on how to influence people so the technical skills make a difference.”
