Big Idea by Marshall Goldsmith


Marshall Goldsmith

Inspired by my daughter, Dr. Kelly Goldsmith, we come up with six questions every day to challenge everybody that we work with, and the results have been fantastic.  The questions were- firstly, did you do your best to set clear goals?  Secondly, did you do your best to make progress toward goal achievement?  Thirdly, did you do your best to be happy.  Fourth, did you do your best to refined meaning?  Fifth, did you do your best to set clear goals? And finally sixth, did you do your best to be fully engaged? We asked the above 6 questions from people everyday and observed that they get to focus on themselves and see what they can do to make a positive difference. This has led to increase in employee engagement.  After a two-week study, it was found 59% of the people got better at everything, 59% better at 4/6 and 86% got better at something and nobody gets worse.  So that is my Big Idea.
