2010 was, for 800-CEO-READ, a year of stability, growth and redesign. Not everyone nor every company is so lucky as to say the same about the past year, but after the chaos, both internally and externally, of 2008-09, we count ourselves lucky that we close the year in a celebratory mood. Some highlights and happenings from 2010: January: We celebrated the winners of the annual 800-CEO-READ business book awards and other industry folks at a party in NYC. READ FULL DESCRIPTION
Marshall Goldsmith brought his MOJO to Milwaukee today for our LeaveSmarter series, and I think he really woke the audience up in a way most business speakers just don't. Our sponsors for these events always send us a list of attendees with seating arrangements ahead of time. The first thing Marshall did was rearrange that preordained seating, having everybody get up and sit next to somebody they didn't know. READ FULL DESCRIPTION

Mojo is that much-desired sweet spot in an organization's year or an individual's career where everything is going the right way. Bestselling author Goldsmith explains that understanding mojo isn't enough, but knowing how to acquire, maintain, or even recapture it is what really counts.
From the Publisher:
Mojo is that much-desired sweet spot in an organization's year, a sports team's season, or an individual's career where everything is going the right way-and success builds upon success. In Mojo, bestselling author and renowned executive coach Marshall Goldsmith explains that having mojo means controlling three elements: - Identity (Who do you think you are?) - Achievement (What have you done lately?) - Reputation (Who do other people think you are? What do other people think you've done lately?) But understanding mojo isn't enough. Knowing how to acquire, maintain, or even recapture it is what really counts, and Goldsmith uses case studies from his own high-profile clients as well as from the lives of public figures like John Travolta and Richard Nixon to illustrate how it's done. Mojo will show that momentum in business-organizations as well as individual lives and careers-is easy to define and quantify; there's a clear cause-and-effect relationship between mojo and success. With Marshall Goldsmith's help, readers will learn a revolutionary new way to jump-start--and capitalize on--their own mojo.
