Marshall Goldsmith (March 20, 1949) is an American author of management-related literature, professor, consultant and executive coach. Born in Valley Station, Kentucky, he received his BS from Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology (1970), his MBA from Indiana University (1972) and his PhD from UCLA (1977). Marshall Goldsmith Partners LLC. : Marshall Goldsmith From 1976-2000 he was Assistant Professor and then Associate Dean at Loyola Marymount University’s College of Business. He is currently a professor at Alliant International University, he teaches executive education at Dartmouth College's Tuck School, and he frequently speaks at leading business schools.
In 1977, he met Paul Hersey, a noted consultant in leadership development, and began his work of teaching executives and managers. He was co-founder of Keilty, Goldsmith and Company and eventually of Marshall Goldsmith Partners, a network of top-level executive coaches.
Goldsmith was a pioneer in the use of customized 360-degree feedback (confidential feedback from direct reports, peers and managers) as a leadership development tool. His early efforts in providing feedback and then following-up with executives to measure changes in behavior were precursors to what eventually evolved as the field of ‘executive coaching.’ In acknowledgment of his work helping leaders change behavior, he received his first national recognition in 1993, being ranked as one of the top ten executive educators in the Wall Street Journal.
While serving as a Board member of the Peter Drucker Foundation in 1996, Goldsmith co-edited his first book, The Leader of the Future (with Frances Hesselbein and Richard Beckhard). Peter Drucker wrote the foreword for this book. This book has since sold hundreds of thousands of copies and has been translated into 28 languages. It is perhaps the most popular edited book on leadership that has ever been written. The success of this first book led Goldsmith (with Frances Hesselbein and the Drucker Foundation, which became the Leader to Leader Institute) to co-edit six more books, which have been extremely well-received in their field.
Goldsmith's work helping successful leaders achieve positive lasting change in behavior for themselves, their people and their teams has been featured in a The New Yorker profile, Harvard Business Review interview, Forbes feature story and Business Strategy Review cover story (from the London Business School). He is one of the few consultants who has been asked to work with more than 80 major CEOs and their management teams. In 2004 he was recognized by the American Management Association as one of 50 great thinkers and business leaders who have impacted the field of management over the past 80 years. In 2005 he was elected as a Fellow in the National Academy of Human Resources — and recognized in Business Week as one of the most influential practitioners in the history of leadership development and an icon in the field of executive coaching.
Alliant International University (which evolved from the merger of the California School of Professional Psychology and United States International University) named their graduate colleges of business and organizational psychology the Marshall Goldsmith School of Management in 2006.
Goldsmith is the co-editor or author of 24 books, including The Leader of the Future (a Business Week best-seller), "Coaching for Leadership," and in 2007 What Got You Here Won’t Get You There (a New York Times best-seller, a Wall Street Journal #1 Business Book, a USA TODAY and Business Week #1 best-seller, and a winner of the Harold Longman Award as Best Business Book of 2007). Harvard Business School has recommended six of his books in their Working Knowledge series. His next book project will be "Developing Your Successor" (in the Harvard Business Memo to the CEO series). Many of Marshall's articles, interviews, columns and videos are available for viewing and sharing online (free of charge) at the Marshall Goldsmith Library.
