Episode Description

Say It Skillfully® is a show that helps you to benefit from Molly Tschang’s expert guidance on the best possible ways to speak your mind at work in a positive and productive manner. Celebrating the 100th episode of Say It Skillfully®, Marshall Goldsmith—World #1 Leadership Thinker, #1 Executive Coach and inspiration for Molly to create her videos that led to the radio show—joins her for a lively look into his life journey. Molly shares her deepest gratitude to all her amazing guests for sharing the ups, downs, twists and turns of their journeys, especially the struggles and “learning moments” that most define who we are. Thanks also to all her wonderful and courageous callers, who were willing to share on the air in the spirit of helping listeners around the globe be who they are and say what needs to be said! This milestone celebrates all of you! Thank you for using your voice and helping create an accurate shared reality!!! Much to learn from Marshall’s journey and his coaching of more than 200 major CEOs and their management teams. Hear how he first met his wife, how his daughter’s feedback improved his earnings, about his spiritual journey, and about some of the most influential people who inspired his thinking and actions. An early epiphany: it’s easy to see our problems in everyone else; difficult to see our own selves in the mirror… Marshall shares his top learnings for you: 1) Work with great people! Make coaching about how great the client is—it’s about them, not you. 2) Mission in life: make a positive difference in people’s lives (not, prove how right or smart we are… Thank you, Peter Drucker). 3) Feedforward: ask people for input; then listen, thank them (don’t critique), and do what you can to try to get better. Don’t miss his most embarrassing moments, and the career path Marshall would have taken… He also shares tidbits from his book due out Sept, 2022, The Earned Life. Molly’s thoughts for the week—thank you Marshall! * Every time I take a breath, I’m a new me. * “Let it go.” (do it with me right now – raise one arm in the air, rotate your wrist a bit and exhale a big breath...) * Be happy now & here. Don’t miss the many wisdoms in this milestone episode, as well as what Marshall has been working on lately, as you learn how to navigate work while being invaluable and true to yourself.
