Staying on top of your game

 Rosabeth Moss Kanter recently wrote a great blog on the Harvard Business Review Blog Network. It’s about five self-defeating behaviours that ruin companies and careers, and how to avoid them:

  • Demanding a bigger share of a shrinking pie
  • Getting angry
  • Giving in to mission creep
  • Adding without subtracting
  • Thinking you’ll get away with it.

As usual, her thoughts are insightful, practical and worth reading.
