The CVBT Podcast: The 7 deadly sins that cripple careers for women

11 minutes

• Veteran coach identifies the major problems -- and offers solutions

• Don’t show up to throw up

There are the seven deadly sins talked about in religion. And then there are the seven deadly sins that will sabotage your career, says speaker, career coach and author Aimee Cohen.

By not correcting these “sins,” women can find their careers hitting a dead end, she says.

Too nice, trying to do too much, trying to do it to perfection – all can be career killers, says Ms. Cohen. And that can also include what she calls the “show up and throw up” problem of women simply sharing too, too much.

“There are so many things in the workforce that we cannot control, so it’s time for women to put on their big girl panties and take control of themselves!” says Cohen.
