Meet Marshall Goldsmith #1 Executive Coach and Leadership Thinker in the World

Leading in an era in which intellectual capital is the dominant source of value has become increasingly complex. Drawing on a multitude of bestselling leadership books, Marshall Goldsmith shows why today’s global leaders’ skills won’t be enough and why tomorrow’s leaders won’t resemble today’s. 

He identifies five new “factors of leadership” and their implications on the world of work today and tomorrow. He will also offer unprecedented insight into the new challenges of global leadership and what it will take to meet them.
