Deal with your saboteurs – from a wise professor

I am reminded of why I like Shirzad Chamine's work so much - he was a guest of ours two years ago as we discussed Positive Intelligence.  Shirzad revealed how to achieve one's true potential for both professional success and personal fulfillment.  This latest article, (see link below) is a great story about what he shares with his new students at Stanford as they start their new year.

His groundbreaking research exposes ten well-disguised mental Saboteurs.  Nearly 95 percent of the executives in his Stanford lectures conclude that these Saboteurs cause "significant harm" to achieving their full potential.  So, why not share this at the beginning of our careers rather than struggle with them for so many years and think that "just harder work" gets us closer to our goals.   Shirzad helps us learn the secret to defeating these internal foes, whether you are a student or deeply embedded in career.  Check this out. We miss you Shirzad!
