About the book

Bestselling author and world-renowned executive coach Marshall Goldsmith examines the environmental and psychological triggers that can derail us at work and in life.

 

Do you ever realize you're not the patient, sympathetic problem solver you think you are? 

Are you surprised by how agitated or flustered you become in the presence of particular coworker? 

When another vehicle cuts you off in traffic, have you ever felt your temper rise from zero to sixty?



Our acts do not take place in vacuum. 
 

They're frequently the product of unnoticed environmental triggers—people and events that tempt us to act in ways that are diametrically contrary to the colleague, partner, parent, or friend we imagine ourselves to be. 

 

These triggers are persistent, unwavering, and all-pervasive. 
 

So frequently, it appears like the environment is beyond our control. 
 

Even if that is true, we have choice in how we respond, as Goldsmith shows out.

 

Goldsmith shows us how to overcome the trigger points in our lives and effect significant and permanent change in Triggers, his most compelling and enlightening book ever. Goldsmith proposes a simple "magic bullet" method of daily self-monitoring based on what he refers to as "active" inquiries. These are inquiries that assess our effort rather than our outcomes. There's a distinction to be made between accomplishing and trying; we may not always be able to reach our goals, but anyone can try. Goldsmith outlines six "engaging questions" in Triggers that might help us accept responsibility for our efforts to develop and realize when we fall short.

Goldsmith presents a personal playbook on how to achieve change in our lives, make it stick, and become the person we want to be, filled with fascinating and illuminating stories from his work with some of the world's most successful chief executives and power brokers.
