Self-defeating behavior is the most common reason that people put their jobs, careers, and reputations in jeopardy.

Get Out of Your Own Way at Workcovers forty of the most common self-defeating behaviors, explains why we sabotage ourselves, and offers proven steps to transform behavior from self-defeating to life-enhancing. Illustrated with anecdotes and "useable insights" drawn from Dr. Goulston's more than twenty years in clinical and organization settings, Get Out of Your Own Way at Workshows anyone how to stop being their own worst enemy.
