Format: Comic
The Round Table Comics adaptation of "What Got You Here Won't Get You There" by Marshall Goldsmith with Mark Reiter is a quick, enjoyable read, that promises to teach 20 workplace habits that you need to break to learn how successful people become even more successful. That's just what this graphic novel edition does. In 50 illustrated pages, this graphic novel captures the main points from Goldsmith's original book. Told in story fashion, each of the 20 habits is covered with just enough to teach you why you should break these habits to become even more successful. It's fun to read and teaches some important concepts.

Previously, I'd read these Round Table and Smarter Comics after I'd read the original book, and the graphic novel versions were great, quick, reviews to cover the main concepts in an illustrated fashion, and I liked the review. This time, I read the graphic novel version of "What Got You Here Won't Get You There" first. I liked the short, simple lessons, but it also made me want to read the book that this comic was based on to get the longer version too.

The illustrations were done by Shane Clester, who I liked from previous graphic novels he's done, and I felt he did a great job with this one too. His illustrations match the lessons and add to the learning you can do in this form.

Even though this short book only touches on each of the 20 workplace habits you need to break, I feel if you think a little about each habit, how it applies to your situation, and if you need to work on improving yourself in this area, you can gain a lot in a short time. However, it might take a bit more thinking on your part to figure out how to apply the simple lessons in your situation.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading the comic book version of Marshall Goldsnith's book entitled What Got You Here Won't Get You There. This comic is an abbreviated version of Marshall Goldsmith's bestselling book of the same title, wherein he identifies 20 workplace habits that organizational leaders need to break. These unuseful habits are equally apparent within many family environments--there is personal as well as professional value in heeding his advice. The illustrations make it easy and breezy to digest the profound ideas presented. Whether in the workplace or in the family, leaders need to work on regulating their "automatic" urges that serve little value or add negative results to the environment. Increasing one's ability to self-regulate and moving into more thoughtful, reflective responses offers the leadership team more bang for their buck. The 20 workplace habits to break are identified in a playful manner, but, according to Coach Goldsmith, it is serious business to consider replacing the identified "success breakers" with more productive ones. Goldsmith discusses many potential pitfalls commonly apparent to him in leadership teams throughout the course of his prolific career doing corporate consultation work. For example, instead of clinging to the past (ie making excuses), bounce forward into a constantly evolving version of oneself. He emphasizes the down side of adding value (making it about "me, me, me" rather than about the organization), the import of stepping up and taking responsibity for one's responses and that such an effort is not "automatic and will require some discipline." Goldsmith implies (and I agree) that it will require considerable inner work to change habits that behave as if they were impulses.Read more ›

Get the non-illustrated version if you want more detail. Got both versions. Illustrated was more fun, but full version more in depth and helpful as both a reference guide and instructional guide.

Well worth the price.

This kind of book is very appealing to my university freshmen in Korea. Since they're at an elite university they think they've made it, and it's useful for them to think about whether in fact they have made it--or even how thinking they made it can then limit their growth. Plus most of them love visual stories, having grown up with Korean and Japanese animation and manga. I'm considering making this book required reading for next semester.

Well. It is a short illustrated comic-type of book. Cute. This is not the book if you want anything serious. More of a thought primer that for someone who wants to consider changing the way they do things. Good for a reminder on key points in Marshall's real book. Set your expectations low though if you expect this book to have some deep soul changing tool. It's more light and fluffy...like a small, vegan appetizer for a four course meal.

When climbing the ladder of leadership, we lose sight of how we're perceived by others. This can cause us to be blind to habits that are received negatively and work against our goals. Goldsmith explores 20 common habits that get in our way. I'm not a "comic book" type of person- use of that format got me out of my box and gave good visuals on building a team.

This is so easy to read-- it's a must for any professional looking to grow! The regular book has far more content than the comic, but for the time or reading challenged-- this is a paramount additional to your professional development, even if you consider simply 'Life' to be your profession.
