Penguin Putnam
A practical guide to help workers and managers deal with the self-sabotage that stands in the way of career advancement and satisfaction.

Self-defeating behavior is the most common reason that people put their jobs, careers, and reputations in jeopardy. Whether it's as simple as a breach of etiquette or a fear of learning new things, expecting too much from employers or failure to delegate, these behaviors lead to frustration, confusion, guilt, defensiveness, and self-doubt that will seriously hurt or even derail a career, no matter how intelligent or qualified a person might be.

Get Out of Your Own Way at Work covers forty of the most common self-defeating behaviors, explains why we sabotage ourselves, and offers proven steps to transform behavior from self-defeating to life-enhancing.

Illustrated with anecdotes and "useable insights" drawn from Dr. Goulston's more than twenty years in clinical and organization settings, Get Out of Your Own Way at Work shows anyone how to stop being their own worst enemy.
