“What Got You Here Won’t Get You There”

There has never been a time in healthcare when the title to one of Marshall Goldsmith’s bestselling books was more accurate, compelling and true!

The Title?  What Got You Here Won’t Get You There: How Successful People Become Even More Successful!


Due to healthcare reform and many other converging legislative, scientific, cultural and social issues and trends, What Got Healthcare Leaders Here (mission, market share, margin and long-term success) Will Not Get Healthcare Leaders There (future mission, market share, margin and long-term success).


I invite you to join me during the next few weeks as we delve into the concepts, ramifications and advice contained in Marshall Goldsmith’s excellent book, What Got You Here Won’t Get You There.  We will discuss the most important concepts, ramifications and advice from a healthcare provider and supplier perspective.  We will bring it home and make it real, based on the reality of healthcare today… and tomorrow.

Some of the most successful leaders in the world have made the following statements regarding Marshall Goldsmith:

“Perhaps the greatest teacher of leadership on the planet.”

“There is simply no better coach for your most important leaders than Marshall Goldsmith.  He excels on the only metric that matters – he achieves positive, measurable change.”

“One of the most credible thought leaders in the new era of business.”

According to Fortune Magazine, “One of the five most-respected executive coaches.”  

If you have a copy of the book, get it out, dust it off and join our study and discussion.  If you don’t have a copy of the book, it is available wherever bestselling books are sold.
