Yes, there is a reason why I'm sharing this article. It is actually a slide show if you click through the links. Part of increasing one's Personal Stock Value in career development is reading. Whose ideas are you reading and considering. In this article, Jim Collins is mentioned. Jim Collins taught at Stanford. He is the author of one of my favorite business books, "Good To Great".

High on this list of the "Top 50 Business Thinkers" is Marshall Goldsmith. When I was searching for executive leadership coaching training programs, I spoke with many people who ran such programs. When I mentioned to a CISO friend who is deeply connected to UCLA that I was on the hunt for the best coach training programs in the country, I was introduced to the Marshall Goldsmith Group. My first executive leadership coaching certification called Stakeholder Centered Coaching (TM) came from Marshall Goldsmith, Chris Coffey and Frank Wagner.

The article introduces Marshall Goldsmith as one of the Top 10 Business Thinkers and has this to say about Marshall Goldsmith.

Marshall Goldsmith created the "360-degree feedback" technique — which helps teams and corporations become more transparent, and ultimately, more effective.

He's written several books, including The Leader of the Future and MOJO: How to Get It, How to Keep It, and How to Get It Back If You Lose It — which is based on "the moment when we do something that's purposeful, powerful, and positive and the rest of the world recognizes it" (via Thinkers50).

He's an executive coach with Marshall Goldsmith Group and teaches at the top business schools in the world, including Dartmouth’s Tuck.

There are many steps one can take to get to the best security jobs. One of those ways is to engage a coach who understands the security profession, a coach who understands what the business expects from the security profession and a coach who has been trained by some of the most forward-thinking business minds in the world.
