Marshall Goldsmith / by john cheng

As a part of personal professional development, City of Hope invited Marshall Goldsmith as one of the keynote speakers that I was fortunate enough to attend. He is a great speaker and had many great case study examples and suggestions of good practice for leaders as well as just life in general.

During his keynote, I jotted down a few things that really stuck out to me. Check them out!

Help more, judge less.

Don’t get caught up with chasing “what I dont have” to the point where i miss out on “what I do have.”

Have fun, life is short!

If you have a dream, go for it! If you don’t do it now, you wont do it when you’re 45 or 65

Overall I really enjoyed his keynote and I will do my best to take into considerations the best practices of leadership.
