By Marshall Goldsmith
The corporate world is filled with executives – men and women who have worked hard for years to reach the upper levels of management. They’re smart, skilled, and even charismatic.
But only a handful of them will ever reach the pinnacle – and subtle nuances make all the difference. These are small interpersonal flaws shown by one person against another, such as:
- Passing judgment on others
- Starting sentences with “No,” “But,” or “However”
- Making excuses, passing the buck, being a poor listener
- Playing favorites or hogging the credit
- Punishing the messenger, withholding information, or not apologizing
If you do any of these, then you may have an annoying habit that is holding your career back.
Using the author’s straightforward, jargon-free advice, it’s amazingly easy behavior to change.
