Career Coach: How to Win the Game
The career game can be fun but also treacherous. Be careful that you dont alienate others by failing to deliver or spreading negativity. Youll be able to overcome any setbacks and advance if you keep your objective (goals) in mind, recognize that there may be many paths to your objective and be willing to explore alternative paths if you encounter too many obstacles on one path, and continue to add skills and experience and be ready to help others with a positive attitude and enthusiasm.
