Bestselling Author and Executive Coach Marshall Goldsmith to Address Toronto CEOs

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Aug. 2, 2011) - Marshall Goldsmith, author of the bestselling book What Got You Here Won't Get You There, will be in Toronto for an exclusive one day event for CEOs, Senior Executives, and their Management Teams this October. CEO Global Network is proud to host Marshall Goldsmith, a world authority in helping successful leaders get even better by achieving positive, lasting change in behaviour for themselves, their people and their teams.

For CEOs and Senior Executives, A Day with Marshall Goldsmith will be an outstanding learning event that will provide them and their teams the opportunity to hear from one of the world's most influential CEO coaches, working through a day of breakthrough thinking on leadership excellence and coaching each other to greater success.

"This is a day for teams who are passionate about learning, growth, and significantly improving their success and lives as CEOs and Senior Executives," says John Wilson, Founder and CEO of CEO Global Network, Inc. "Marshall's approach to reaching new levels of success is legendary and has been proven time and time again with CEOs and Management Teams of high performing companies throughout the world. For the first time, we're opening the doors to CEOs and Senior Executives in the GTA to also tap into those insights."

The event will focus on the lessons of Goldsmith's book What Got You Here Won't Get You There, which has a remained a fixture on national best-seller lists since it was first published in 2007. In his book, Goldsmith identifies the habits which most often interfere with executives increasing their success and provides simple, effective ways in which executive teams can pinpoint those and work together to achieve more faster as individual leaders and companies.

"Years ago, great leaders were those who were unemotional, rational, even mechanistic. Those days are gone," advises Goldsmith. "Today's leader, especially one who is in charge of a dynamic, global organization, finds himself or herself in desperate need of one key trait — self-awareness. This sort of personal mastery entails having a heightened understanding of one's own behavior, motivators, and competencies."

'A Day with Marshall Goldsmith' is taking place at the Sheraton Hotel at 801 Dixon Road in Toronto. This is just one of the many learning events held throughout the year by CEO Global Network. While most CEO Global Network events are exclusive to Members of this CEO and Executive Peer Group Organization, this event invites all CEOs and Senior Executives to experience this world-class speaker and excellent learning opportunity.

CEOs and their Executive Teams can register beginning today, with the first 100 registrations receiving a signed copy of Goldsmith's book What Got You Here Won't Get You There. Learn more and register at
