Overview

Mojo is the moment when we do something that's purposeful, powerful, and positive and the rest of the world recognizes it. This book is about that moment—and how we can create it in our lives, maintain it, and recapture it when we need it.

In his follow-up to the New York Times bestseller What Got You Here Won't Get You There, #1 executive coach Marshall Goldsmith shares the ways in which to get—and keep—our Mojo. Our professional and personal Mojo is impacted by four key factors: identity (who do you think you are?), achievement (what have you done lately?), reputation (who do other people think you are—and what have you've done lately?), and acceptance (what can you change—and when do you need to just "let it go"?). Goldsmith outlines the positive actions leaders must take, with their teams or themselves, to initiate winning streaks and keep them coming.

Mojo is: that positive spirit—towards what we are doing—now—that starts from the inside—and radiates to the outside. Mojo is at its peak when we are experiencing both happiness and meaning in what we are doing and communicating this experience to the world around us. The Mojo Toolkit provides fourteen practical tools to help you achieve both happiness and meaning—not only in business, but in life.

Marshall's Mojo provides wonderful perspectives and tools for each of us—to integrate and focus our lives—to contribute—and to serve. Thank you!"

I have always known when my own mojo was up and when it was down. I never stopped, however, to define it, understand it or know how to modify it in a proactive way Marshall takes that very hard-to-define word and gives it a very specific meaning. He provides his readers with numerous ways to assess themselves. Each of these methods unpeels another mojo layer and provides action steps for the user. His questionnaires are well thought through and practical. They cause the reader to do some very important soul searching. Marshall gives us all a gift. I can't imagine anyone coming away from this book without leaving markers on many "return to" pages and making some (even small) commitment to change.

I have just read Mojo cover to cover and all I can say is...Marshall has done it again! From the opening page until the final chapter, this is a compelling read that every single person must experience. In a style that can only be called "Marshall", the book unfolds with an engaging combination of story telling, instructional models and helpful toolkits. Marshall's message is aimed at every person, from the most senior executive to the newest member of the workforce. What sets this book apart is that you should have all of your family members read it too! Mojo will have you examining the power of your life choices in a whole new way. You will want to approach your life and your work with a fresh perspective to ensure that you are maximizing every day. His measurement tools are easy to apply and will yield important data about your life. His messages can be distilled down to one important pillar - the foundation of being accountable for your own life and how you live it. I plan to introduce Mojo into my corporate culture for all levels of employees. I highly recommend this book and hope you will invest your time to read it!

Marshall Goldsmith has hit a home run with his latest book. Pure, simple advice that is compelling because he writes to you, the reader. Marshall provides self-assessment wording without making the reader feel they are being judged. His self-examples, corporate settings and events, and examples he logged along his journey provide readers a wide array of self-views. While the book is written as self-help, Marshall also offers methods to involve others as support groups toward getting, keeping, and finding your MOJO. What is MOJO? Get the book!

Marshall Goldsmith writes: "Our default response in life is NOT to experience happiness. Our default response in life is NOT to experience meaning. Our default response in life is to experience inertia." Marshall's latest book will force you to look within and take action to have more meaning and happiness at work and in life. That's what people who have Mojo are projecting to the world. We all want to have Mojo but figuring out "how" to do it can be elusive -until now. Marshall has brillantly cracked the code and gives you powerful and practical tools to help you boost your mojo in the workplace and beyond. My biggest takeaway from this book is...finding success is about first learning to feed your soul. Marshall is a master at keeping people focused on what really matters!

If you have ever had the pleasure of seeing Marshall perform a Keynote Address, you can see the passion he brings to both individuals and the workplace in general; such passion, or feel free to call it MOJO, resonates throughout this book. MOJO is a wonderful guidebook offering sage advice about personal accountability and how to re-start or re-calibrate toward true Employee Engagement. A great read. - Kevin Sheridan, New York Times Best-selling Author, Building A Magnetic Culture

Marshall Goldsmith is one of the top executive coaches in the world today. I consider his What Got You Here Won’t Get You There to be essential reading. So I have had Mojo queued up on my Nook for a while. I have to admit it did not really spark me or light me up as many of his previous books have. The book revolves around defining Mojo as a form of positive spirit within you, how you can get Mojo, improve your Mojo, measure it and keep it. I did get a few nuggets of wisdom – firstly about valuing the importance of time (an hour from now, if you were to look back on the value of the time you just spent – would it be worthwhile? If the answer is no – then don’t do it!). Secondly about “Nojo” – the opposite of Mojo. We all see a lot of that every day so it’s nice to label it! If you’re having trouble getting motivated, questioning your career choice or trying to figure out what’s next in your life – Mojo Measuring might be the thing for you.

What a great topic and a must read book if you want learn about getting your "flow" in life or in the work that you do. Marshall Goldsmith suggests Mojo is "that positive spirit toward what we are doing now that starts from the inside and radiates to the outside." And while the book is written in straightforward, easy to read way, it also digs into some of the nuances of getting your Mojo back or getting it going. Further, to keep it really interesting and to make the ideas stick, Dr. Goldsmith offers some good stories along the way. The reader will walk away with tools and insights for increasing their personal and professional MOJO and for their life overall.
