Marshall Goldsmith, Executive discussed on Coaching for Leaders
Steps you'll hear in these lessons won't make that behavior change easy but it will give you a clear framework to create movement almost immediately a friend of Mine Reta comment I made about people confusing learning and knowledge and sent me an email she said on strengths. Finder input is one of my top five talents I love to gather knowledge but how could I possibly integrate? So, it becomes a problem. What do I do with it? How do I manage it? How do I decide what to move on and what to delete? I sent a reply back saying I don't think it's just people with. As a top strength through struggle with us in the digital age were all being bombarded with tons of input data each day. So how do you actually start to get traction on creating movement? The first step is deciding one place to start over the next ninety days in zeroing in there. Even, though this is the first step to generate movement, it's probably one of the hardest parts that's because a lot of our organizations families even on social media have convinced us that we can have it all. We can do everything and we can do a lot of it really well, and here's the odd thing. The smarter you are in the more success you've had in your career up to this point, the harder it is actually zero in on one leadership skill. Many of us got to where we are by holding a lot in our brains, sharing tons of useful knowledge. But. That's why you also see a lot of people hit a plateau in their careers once they've gotten as far as they can with their technical skill, set an entirely not an accident as to why Marshall Goldsmith probably one of the best known executive coaches wrote a book for leaders called what got you here won't get you there. Often, when I invite high-achieving people to zero in on one place to get traction I, get a bit of pushback saying that such a strategy would ignore the other nine things that are also important.
