There isn't much in the world that hasn't happened before (except for man-made global warming) that we can't learn about by reading our history.
Nancy Pelosi recent misstep is not the end of the world. She was being true to her heart, which is not a bad thing in itself.
But there is a lesson to be learned for all leaders from Pelosi: when you get to a higher position, you must grow with it.
And that's the lesson from Marshall Goldsmith's new book: What Got You Here Won't Get You There: How Successful People Become Even More Successful.
Executives who hire Goldsmith for one-on-one coaching pay $250,000 for the privilege. With this book, his help is available for 1/10,000th of the price.
Anyone who thinks they're a leader should read it carefully.
