What Got You Here Won't Get You There: How Successful People Become Even More Successful
What keeps us from becoming the person that we want to be? Why are our New Year’s resolutions forgotten by February? Why is employee engagement near an all-time low? Dr. Marshall Goldsmith is a world authority in helping successful leaders achieve positive, lasting change in behavior: for themselves, their people and their teams. In this fast-paced, interactive keynote, Dr. Goldsmith will explain why we so often don’t become the person that we want to be. He will then share several structured approaches to managing our lives (at home and work) that have been proven to result in positive behavioral change. Marshall will also share a completely new approach to employee engagement that teaches employees how to engage themselves. Finally, Dr. Goldsmith will describe his breakthrough work with Alan Mulally, (the former CEO of Ford and CEO of the Year in the US) and show how a disciplined change process can not only impact individuals and teams, but also an entire organization.
“Mojo” is the feeling we get when we’re moving forward, making progress, achieving goals, clearing hurdles, passing the competition—and doing so with increasing ease. Based on his newest book, Marshall Goldsmith discusses the new world of work and shows why mojo is more important than ever before. Goldsmith will reveal how our mojo is impacted by identity, achievement, reputation, and acceptance. By the end of the session, participants will be able to define mojo, measure it, and keep mojo by letting go of the little stuff, avoiding pointless arguments at work, and steering clear of mojo-killers. Free applications will be available to help participants experience more happiness and meaning at work and at home.

"As the opening keynote speaker for the Australian Human Resources Institute annual National Convention, Marshall Goldsmith wowed over 1000 delegates with his thought-provoking and engaging presentation. [He was a] high-energy, extremely captivating, and inspiring speaker and presenter [who had] fantastic charisma [and offered] extremely relevant, practical tools. [His] humor, pathos and insight made me feel the importance of life and that to get the most out of people, you have to give them what they need. What an inspirational man!"
"The value that Marshall added to our convention extended beyond his presentation. He positioned himself as an ambassador of our organization, promoting AHRI at every opportunity. He really was one of the team and my staff still rave about him! We cannot thank him enough and we look forward to working with Marshall again in the near future."
