Whether it's a simple breach of etiquette or fear of learning new things, expecting too much from employees or failure to delegate, self-defeating behavior is the most common reason people put their jobs and reputations in jeopardy. In quick, to-the-point chapters, Goulston explains that if a professional does one or more of the following, they're getting in their own way-and limiting their success: - Expecting thier boss to appreciate them - Letting fear of failure paralyze them - Procrastinating and wasting time - Making excuses and getting defensive - Failing to delegate - Fearing performance reviews (either giving them or getting them) Covering 40 of the most common self-defeating behaviors, this new book shows how to change behaviors-from self-defeating to career-enhancing.
