Chad Gordon interviews Dr. Marshall Goldsmith, the world's top-rated executive coach and author of the new book, Triggers: Creating Behavior That Lasts–Becoming the Person You Want to Be.
Dr. Goldsmith discusses the environmental and psychological triggers that can derail us at work and in life and what we can do about it.
Drawing on his years of experience coaching top executives Goldsmith shares an inside look on how to achieve change in our lives. He discusses the unique challenges top executives face and shares the number one reason people don't act on their good intentions. He also shares six questions he recommends asking yourself everyday to stay on track and begin to find alternatives to instinctive impulse-response behavior patterns.
Goldsmith explains how planning in advance--learning to avoid negative triggers when possible--and adjusting behavior when unavoidable by recognizing we have a choice opens up new possibilities. Great advice on how to add a little structure to our lives that allows us to be our best.
