“We have met the enemy, and he is us.” Many of the professional problems we blame on boneheaded bosses and clueless coworkers actually come from ourselves. How can we identify career woes we bring on ourselves, and learn to get out of our own way?

Give him 60 minutes of video viewing time, and he'll share those secrets with you.
