Speaker Bio

Dr. Marshall Goldsmith is a world authority in helping successful leaders get even better - by achieving positive, lasting change in behavior: for themselves, their people and their teams.

Marshall's newest book, What Got You Here Won't Get You There, is a New York Times best seller, Wall Street Journal #1 business book and winner of the Harold Longman Award as the Best Business Book of 2007.

Recently, the London Times named Marshall Goldsmith one of the top 50 most influential living management thinkers. The American Management Association named him as one of 50 great thinkers and leaders who have influenced the field of management over the past 80 years and Business Week listed him as one of the most influential practitioners in the history of leadership development.

He is a Fellow of the National Academy of Human Resources - America's top HR honor. His work has been featured in a New Yorker profile, Harvard Business Review interview and Business Strategy Review cover story (London Business School). Major business press acknowledgments include: Wall Street Journal - one of the top ten executive educators, Forbes - one of five most-respected executive coaches, Economic Times (India) - one of five rajgurus of America, Economist (UK) - one of three most credible executive advisors in the new era of business and Fast Company - America's preeminent executive coach.

Dr. Goldsmith's Ph.D. is from UCLA. He teaches executive education at Dartmouth's Tuck School and frequently speaks at leading business schools. His work has been recognized by almost every professional organization in his field. In 2006 Alliant International University honored Marshall by naming their schools of business and organizational studies the Marshall Goldsmith School of Management.

Marshall is one of a select few advisors who have been asked to work with over 100 major CEOs and their management teams. He also delivers top-rated keynotes, seminars and workshops.

Dr. Goldsmith is co-founder of Marshall Goldsmith Partners, a network of top-level executive coaches. He served as a member of the Board of the Peter Drucker Foundation for ten years. He has been a volunteer teacher for US Army Generals, Navy Admirals, Girl Scout executives, International and American Red Cross leaders - where he was a National Volunteer of the Year.

Marshall's twenty-three books include: The Leader of the Future (a Business Week best-seller), Coaching for Leadership and the upcoming Developing Your Successor (in the Harvard Business Memo to the CEO Series).
