“Coaching is multi-faceted, subtle and yet hugely powerful. It can change lives and careers. Marshall Goldsmith and Scott Osman are at the centre of the world’s greatest network of coaches. Coaching@Work is as inspirational as it is important.” - Thinkers50 on Coaching@Work
A few years ago, Marshall Goldsmith attended a program led by the designer Ayse Birsel. It was called Design the Life You Love. Participants were asked to write down the names of their heroes. Goldsmith wrote Frances Hesselbein (former CEO of the Girl Scouts and recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom), Alan Mulally (former CEO of Ford), Dr. Jim Kim (President of the World Bank), Peter Drucker (founder of modern management), Paul Hersey (author, teacher, and a personal mentor to Goldsmith), and the leadership thinker Warren Bennis. Next Birsel asked what made people think of them as heroes. Goldsmith wrote that they were all “great teachers” and “very generous”. Birsel then challenged participants to “be more like them” in designing the lives we love.
From this, Marshall Goldsmith came up with the idea to teach 15 people everything he knows at no charge. In return, these 15 would “pay it forward” by doing the same thing for 15 others, for free. He made a 30-second video about the project for LinkedIn which became the most widely viewed video in LinkedIn history. The project mushroomed into 100 Coaches – for which more than 16,000 people applied.
