How many times have you said or done something that cost you a job, promotion or a relationship and you swore to yourself you'd never do it again - but did?
Whether you are a public servant, business owner, part of the executive team, director, manager, supervisor, line staff, ministry leader or a young professional beginning your career, Dorothy Burton explains how to succeed by getting out of your own way.
Many people are fired, passed over or wreck relationships not for lack of skill, talent or desire - but lack of self-awareness. Many of us don't know how we will respond under pressure and only after blowing it and causing regrettable damage, do we look back on the mess we made and often exclaim, "That wasn't me " It was - you just didn't know that person existed.
One of the greatest yet overlooked deterrents to success is the lack of self-awareness. Most people fire themselves, miss out on great opportunities and ruin relationships simply because they don't know themselves well enough and as a result, repeatedly self-sabotage and ultimately self-destruct.
