Even if you’re a hard worker, you could be sabotaging your own career growth by the way you talk or present yourself.
Employees should try to avoid four common types of self-defeating behavior:
-Talking too fast, which makes what you say seem unimportant.
-Talking too much — giving more detail than anyone needs or wants.
-Being too critical or passing judgements on others.
-Being too self-critical or too revealing about your own inadequacies.
Most people don’t need to develop themselves, they just need to get out of their own way.
