Technically you may be one of the best people on your team but somehow you don't get the recognition you seek.You wonder why peers are promoted before you, why your salary increases seem meager and why you are overlooked for choice assignments and career enhancing projects.

Often times the root cause of a stymied career is not the lack of superior technical capabilities - hard skills, but underdeveloped soft skills.Soft skills like teamwork, keeping commitments and attitude can either set you apart from your teammates or stop your career dead in its tracks. To make matters worse, when you fail to practice soft skills effectively, you rarely get the kind of feedback that gives you insight into how you can change the self-defeating behavior.

Managers seem to find it much easier to point out how their employees' can improve their technical skills but are challenged with coming up with the right words to coach employees on improving their softer skills.Stop Sabotaging Your Career is an opportunity for you to gain insights into the top 10 ten career-sabotaging behaviors and how you can overcome them.Join Debra for this lively session where you will have the opportunity to work through a sabotaging behaviors checklist and identify your career sabotaging behaviors, while also designing your personal action plan to get you back on track.
