Mark Tercek - Managing Director, Goldman Sachs & Co

"Marshall Goldsmith is the coach's coach. No one is more of a listener, who learns from us (his students) from what we say or do not say. Taking from what he has heard, he molds for all of us a program to make us and our people better for having been in his presence."

Alan Hassenfeld - Chairman of the Board, Hasbro

"Your valuable insights on leadership development and the related responsibilities of coaching and mentoring are critical to our general officers and their spouses. These are turbulent times, and the tools and techniques that you shared with them are therefore vitally important as they return to their various commands and leadership responsibilities."

Chief of Staff
U.S. Army

"Marshall has guided many of our most seasoned managers into gaining profound insights about themselves. Marshall has a gift of helping people realize they can be themselves and be great leaders, too! No one is better at helping people to refocus on what is truly important in our lives as leaders and as human beings than Marshall."
