Dr. Marshall Goldsmith Named Winner of the 2011 Thinkers50 Leadership Award (sponsored by Harvard Business Review) as the World’s Most-Influential Leadership Thinker
Over the past decade, the prestigious, bi-annual Thinkers50 ranking (now sponsored by the Harvard Business Review) has served the global business community by showcasing the top business thinkers on the planet. This week in London, internationally acclaimed executive educator, coach and author, Dr. Marshall Goldsmith, was named winner of the 2011 Thinkers50 Leadership Award – as the World’s Most Influential Leadership Thinker, additionally ranking #7 on the overall list of Thinkers50 world’s top 50 business thinkers.
"Marshall Goldsmith is singularly persuasive, networked, and energetic. In the crowded leadership sphere, he is fixed on changing the practice of leaders for the better rather than the neatness of his theories," says Thinkers50 co-founder Stuart Crainer.
Goldsmith, a world authority on helping successful leaders get even better, is the author of the New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestselling books MOJO and What Got You Here Won’t Get You There – winner of the Harold Longman Award for Business Book of the Year. He received his Ph.D. from UCLA’s Anderson School of Management (where he was recognized in 2010 as one of the school’s 100 distinguished graduates) and teaches executive education at Dartmouth’s Tuck School.
