“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

As the CEO of the Girl Scouts, I was working to help a great organization become ‘the best that we could be’. The first person Marshall volunteered to work with was me – this sent an important message. I was exuberant about the experience, I improved and we moved this process across the organization.

“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.”

Eric K. Shinseki

Chief of Staff, U.S. Army

To fully realize the potential that lies in this transformation, our leaders must be able to demonstrate values-based leadership practices to maximize employee engagement each and every day. Marshall’s teachings remind us of how personal growth and change are a never ending journey

John Hammergren

“Marshall helped us determine that the role of a leader is about inspiring others. He showed us how to inspire others and build lasting relationships. He challenged our team and they loved working with him.”

Cass Wheeler

CEO American Heart Association

Seasoned executives often have a difficult time accepting that they can get better and understanding what they need to do to get there. No one operates at this level better than Marshall Goldsmith. The difference he has made with me is truly exceptional – and the only thing better is what he has been able to help me do with my senior executive team. Marshall is truly an exceptional person and coach.

Bob Cullen

CEO Thomson Healthcare and Scientific

As a coach, Marshall is like a best friend who tells you honestly what you need to know in the spirit of helping his best friend to do even better. He does this with genuine feedback from your colleagues, properly interpreted, which is actionable. He helps you to create a feedback loop which helps to make you a better leader and to measure how much you have improved. As a CFO, I believe in measurement!

Jim Lawrence

Vice Chairman and CFO General Mills
