Having coached some of the smartest business people on this planet, Marshall Goldsmith believes that one of the problems with smart people is their need to add a “lot of value” to the other party. Sometimes that can hurt rather than help.
Please take a look at this brilliant article that I first read in his newsletter on this topic. I am sure all of you smart people out there will find this fascinating.
