As we end the year, I thought it would be interesting to review your favorite blogs (and mine). I would love to hear your thoughts on these articles and videos and any others. If you liked one or two, why? If not, why not? What did you learn? Do you have questions?

Marshall Goldsmith

In yesterday's world, people worked 40 hours a week and took four weeks of vacation. This question was practically moot. If you didn't like your job it was pretty much part-time anyway, the benefits were glorious, and it just wasn't that bad.

It's Showtime! One Key to Continual Motivation

So here's the dilemma: When is acting being professional? When is acting being phony? I want to help leaders learn how to be great performers, but I never believe that they should be phonies. How can I, as a coach, understand the difference?

Stop Defining Yourself as a Jerk!

Marshall Goldsmith | Posted 12.21.2014 | Business
Marshall Goldsmith

These little sayings add up to our definition of who we are. I consider them a pile of behaviors that we define as "me." The more we talk, the more we define our unalterable essence.

The fearful thoughts of What am I going to do next? How am I going to make money? What am I going to do next? released. It became clear -- I gave up all of the shoes and clothes, sublet my Manhattan apartment, packed a travel backpack, and flew to Thailand.

You've Changed! Why Didn't They Notice?

Marshall Goldsmith | Posted 11.16.2014 | Business
Marshall Goldsmith

You have to be consistent in how you present yourself -- to the point where you don't mind being "guilty of repeating yourself." If you abandon the consistency, people will get confused and the perception you are trying to change will get muddied by conflicting evidence that you are just the same as you were.

No Excuses!

Marshall Goldsmith

Genuinely apologizing is one of the most magical healing, restorative gestures a person can make. Without the apology, there is no recognition or acknowledgement that mistakes have been made, there is no announcement that you intend to change, and most importantly, there is no emotional contract between you and the people you care about.

Two Magic Words - Thank You!

Marshall Goldsmith

Thanking works because it expresses one of our most basic emotions: gratitude. Not an abstraction, gratitude is a genuine emotion. It cannot be exacted or forced. You either feel it or you don't.

Without integrity, nothing really, fully, works. The many costs of ignoring it, or taking it for granted.... are too steep and too persistent to continue.

Why Philly Must Persist in Protesting

Christopher Norris | Posted 08.11.2014 | Education
Christopher Norris

There's a lot at stake when it comes to fairly funding public education, but it seems only the teachers, students and parents are sacrificing -- I've never heard of a stadium being closed because the team didn't make the points or a politician's salary being drastically cut to make ends meet.
