Triggers: Becoming the Person that We Want to Be

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: How to Get It, How to Keep It & How to Get It Back If You Lose It

Goldsmith will reveal how our mojo is impacted by identity, achievement, reputation, and acceptance.
