Developed with Marshall Goldsmith based on his bestselling book

You’ve been successful up until now—but can you redefine yourself for continued success in the future?


Is something robbing you of your future success? Your talents, skills and accomplishments got you where you are today. But some of these behaviors could actually be holding you back now, and in ways you don’t expect. Even if your goals have stayed the same, the world of business hasn’t. Will you still be able to accomplish what you want in the future? And with the fierce competition for jobs, will decision-makers continue to see you as the best person for the evolving responsibilities of the job you’re doing today?

This powerful, solutions-based, interactive program is based on Marshall Goldsmith’s international bestseller What Got You Here Won’t Get You There. You’ll gain skills, insights and practical techniques to help you pinpoint key factors that may keep you from getting your next job—or even hanging on to this one. You’ll experience Feedforward©, Marshall’s proprietary tool to get the specific, objective look at yourself you may not be getting from the people around you, and receive balanced feedback to help you change counterproductive habits. You’ll also develop an action plan to help you achieve both your professional and personal goals—while still maintaining your own unique style.
