What Holds Leaders Back? --HBR IdeaCast

What Holds Leaders Back? is the title of this week's Harvard Business Review IdeaCast.

"This week, Harvard Management Update Editor Christina Bielaszka-DuVernay sits down with Marshall Goldsmith, world-renowned coach to executive leaders and author of the recently published What Got You Here Won’t Get You There: How Successful People Become Even More Successful. In our HBR IdeaCast interview, Goldsmith identifies some of the habits that hold leaders back and explains what they can do to change these self-limiting behaviors."
