9 Career Stoppers for Women

Assume You’ll Be Rewarded for a Job Well Done

Information is power in organizational life, and discovering or sharing scintillating information about others can make you feel powerful. But gossiping almost always undermines your perceived integrity and must be avoided at all costs.
Flirt with Men to Get Your Way
This is a strategy that also seems to come naturally, and the short-term gains can be heady. It always comes back to haunt you in the end, however. Get promoted on the quality of your ideas, hard work and ability to enable teams to work together. Leave your other moves to the hours outside of work.
