Program Description

You may be your career's worst enemy. Change your professional image by overcoming destructive workplace behavior!

What’s your professional image? Do you steamroll over others in a quest for power…constantly rebel against authority…start and spread office gossip…cry at the drop of a hat in stressful situations?
