OK .... I'm a HUGE Marshall Goldsmith fan. I devour his books and incorporate a number of his principles and methodologies in the executive coaching work I do with my clients. His ideas WORK.
One of my favorite Marshall Goldsmith-inspired techniques is using the process he's coined as "Feedforward" to solict ideas from those around you at work as to HOW you can become a more effective manager, leader, teammate and colleague.
Using this technique, Marshall suggests that when you think of giving feedback, start giving feedforward instead - focus on the promise of the future rather than the mistakes of the past.
I've included the following video of Marshall Goldsmith as he explains this powerful concept .... Hope you enjoy.
