Marshall Goldsmith

Founder of the 100 Coaches

When you hear people talking about leadership development, one name comes to mind more than any other. That is the inimitable Marshall Goldsmith. Goldsmith was born in Valley Station, KY. He attended the Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology for an undergraduate degree in mathematical economics, then received his MBA from Indiana University’s Kelley School of Business, and finally a PhD from UCLA Anderson School of Management in Los Angeles, CA. 

Goldsmith was an early pioneer of 360 degree feedback, a revolutionary leadership concept, something which now is standard practice in leadership coaching. His contributions to the business world and leadership realm are immeasurable, and he further expanded on his legacy with his creation of the MG100—his pick of the world’s top executive leaders and coaches which all receive highly effective training from Marshall himself. 

His professional accreditations include being called one of America’s top 50 great leaders by the Wall Street Journal, being ranked America’s #1 executive coach by Inc. Magazine, as well as receiving the Lifetime Achievement Award for Excellence in Teaching by the American Management Association. He has authored and co-authored over a dozen books that have been translated into 28 languages, including the New York Times best sellers What Got You Here Won’t Get You There, Mojo, and Triggers.

Marshall currently resides in Rancho Santa Fe, CA, with his wife Lyda. He teaches executive education at Dartmouth College’s Tuck School of Business.
