About the Author
Throughout the years we have worked together, Marilyn has applied her broad range of skills to several new projects and opportunities in my own business. Marilyn has firsthand experience with the Marshall Goldsmith coaching concepts she presents in her book. She recently managed a coaching engagement with four very senior executives in a 'Fortune 500' client of mine. She did a wonderful job of managing the work of coaches involved-and coordinating the project. The end result was positive, long-term change in behavior for the client executives-and a very positive experience for the coaches!
Though Marilyn's coaching has focused mainly on small business owners during her career, the exercises and concepts she presents in her book make sense for anyone who is taking charge of their own enterprise, their career, or finding their way through a personal challenge or transition. The 7 Steps she presents offer tools to improve anyone's personal management skills.
Marilyn is an exceptional coach. She has a way of fitting into an environment and providing support and guidance in a manner that does not call attention to herself, but instead enhances the business owner's vision and personal style.
With wisdom distilled from her coaching practice, Marilyn's got it right. She clearly has her finger on the pulse of what you need to know today to manage yourself in a small business.
