In this session of the Great Work Insights Podcast, Todd Nordstrom speaks with Dr. Marshall Goldsmith, the author or editor of 35 books, including two New York Times bestsellers, “MOJO” and “What Got You Here Won’t Get You There.” In addition, last year Dr. Goldsmith was recognized as the #1 Leadership Thinker in the World and the top 5 Management Thinker.
You will learn:
3:51 – What Goldsmith’s definition of a “trigger” is.
3:56 – Triggers relates to what stimuli impacts behavior.
5:20 – How do triggers impact our work performance?
5:35 – The importance of focus during the workday, to understand why we are doing things a certain way.
5:43 – The “Monkey Mind” concept.
9:18 – What the “Daily Question Process” is and how it can eliminate distractions/triggers and develop behaviors that makes you the person you want to be.
14:20 – Advice for managers in changing behavior?
14:45 – The importance of looking inwards and seeing what behaviors you want to improve.
17:37 – Typically, there is a trigger, an impulse and a behavior—but by realizing I have a choice, makes your behavior a function of that choice, not a function of the impulse. And to the degree in life we can do that, we’re going to be much more inline with the person we want to be as oppose to the person being created by the world around us.
