Leadership expert and longtime Global Institute for Leadership Development™ faculty member Marshall Goldsmith isn’t kidding when he tells the executives he works with to “stop winning so much.” But as you’ll see in this short video clip, he’s not telling executives to “lose.” However, he is saying that most type-A/hard-driving leaders will be more successful, bring more people along with them, and lead happier lives if they can learn to ease up on their compulsion to be right and “win” all the time.
