What Separate The Great From The Near Great

What’s holding you back? Your hard work is paying off, you are doing well in your work and in relationships, but there’s something standing between you and your next level of achievement.


The question is WHY?


‘What Got You Here Won’t Get You There’ by Marshall Goldsmith discusses not only the key beliefs of successful leaders, but also overcoming personality traits and behaviors that hold them back in achieving greatest success.


The corporate world is filled with hundreds of executives, men and women who are intelligent, skilled and charismatic but only a handful of them will ever reach the pinnacle. Behavioral problems, not technical skills, are what separate the great from the near great. Marshall believes that with the right approach and performance, it is still quite possible one can succeed in spite of various flaws and behavior. 

As a coach for many years, I’ve learned that being competitive surely helps us bring our careers to the next level, but if we are not cautious about this, wanting to win too much would lead to goal obsession and ultimately career destruction.


“To help others develop, start with yourself.”



The Visual Mindmap, is your guide to know the systematic approach of overcoming twenty habits commonly found in the corporate environment. ‘What Got You Here Won’t Get You There by Marshall Goldsmith’ addresses fundamental problems that often come with success and offers ways to attack them.
