The 12 Habits that Keep Women from Reaching Their Goals

Start exploring habits that you do, but probably aren’t even aware of, that limit you from reaching your fullest potential.

Learn how to get comfortable taking ownership and responsibility for your work.

Habit 2: Expecting Others to Spontaneously Notice and Reward Your Contributions

Learn how to make sure your hard work and achievements are made visible to those who matter most.

Habit 3: Overvaluing Expertise

Expertise is not the only type of non-positional power. Discover and develop additional complementary powers so that you can rise through the ranks.

Leveraging relationships is a key career-development skill and this lesson will teach you how to develop and utilize this undervalued skill.

Habit 5: Failing to Enlist Allies from Day One

Discover methods to pull people into your network who are willing to trade favors and form alliances. This is the lifeblood of a successful career.

Unpack the counterintuitive notion that progressing your job won’t necessarily benefit your career and learn how to become ambitious enough to focus on the latter.

Habit 7: The Perfection Trap

Learn how to overcome perfectionism by prioritizing, delegating, and getting comfortable taking measured risks so your career can flourish.

Habit 8: The Disease to Please

Develop the confidence to stand your ground and push back against the disease to please.

Habit 9: Minimizing

Learn to overcome the habit of minimizing yourself physically, through your speech, and through your mannerisms so that you can enjoy the serenity and power that come from being comfortable in your own space.

Habit 10: Too Much

Your emotions are a great source of strength. Learn how to express them skillfully in order to utilize their power.

Habit 11: Ruminating

Develop the skills for overcoming the tendency to ruminate, which can have detrimental effects on you as a person and a leader.

Habit 12: Letting Your Radar Distract You
