What Got You Here Won’t Get You There, by Marshall Goldsmith with Mark Reiter, discusses how successful people become even more successful. It has been on the bestselling lists of The New York Times, Amazon.com, and the Wall Street Journal.
Summary of the Book
This title explains how it is a natural human desire to scale greater heights in life and to aspire more and push the limits of success. It is divided into four major sections. The first section discusses how a series of triumphs can cause an embellished feeling of too much self-confidence, which can prove to be a negative influence on an individual’s future success. The second section is called The Twenty Habits That Hold You. In this section, the author talks about the self-destructive habits that can surface once a person becomes successful at something, and how to overcome them. The last sections are meant for those in the management sector. Marshall moves on to deal with concerns that pervade a business rather than the individual flaws, and the right strategies for handling these bad habits when they surface in subordinates, as well as in seniors. He highlights how significant it is to be absolutely clear and particular about job errands, and how vital it is to be honest, in order to create a strong and effective work environment.
