For many, a New Year means resolutions or at least some commitment to improvement and growth in the coming 12 months.

Likely there are areas in our working lives and personalities that could benefit from that attention.

Career guru Brandon Smith helps identify and start to address these career derailers and fatal flaws – the inherent traits we have that prevent us from reaching our full potential.

Brandon Smith teaches about leadership, communication, and workplace culture at Emory University's Goizueta Business School. More of his advice is on his blog and at theworkplacetherapist.com. And while you’re there, ask him your workplace or career question. We might use your question on a future radio segment.
