There’s always a lag between when a leader makes a behavioral change and when others perceive the change. Maybe you’ve experienced this in your personal life when you had a conflict with a friend or spouse and he brought up something that happened in the distant past, even though you’ve worked hard to change. Or perhaps in the workplace, you were hired into a specific role and have been promoted, but others still see you in the previous role.

In our executive coaching programs, the leaders we coach face two challenges. One is to make behavioral changes. However, the second, and bigger, challenge leaders face is changing the perceptions that others have of them. After all, there’s history, first impressions, baggage, and previous experiences that get in the way. In addition, there’s always a lag between when a leader makes a change and when others notice that change or even believe it to be real and lasting.

Many of us have to-do lists.
But what we really need is a “don’t-do” list.
As you transition into the new year and strive to reach your professional goals, it’s critical that you stop some of the tendencies that are slowing you down or getting in your way. Through our work in executive coaching programs, we uncovered some of these bad habits, every one of which has a negative impact on your life.
So add these to your brand, spanking-new don’t-do list.

In our July post we outlined 4 common and costly behavioral traits that we notice consistently in our executive coaching engagements that stall or kill a leader’s career. It was one of our most read posts and people wanted more. In fact, one subscriber even said, “Aren’t there more than four?”
The answer, of course, is yes there are more than four career killers. We've noticed 16 pretty common derailers as we work with people across leadership levels, gender and industry. So, we decided to dedicate this post and the next post to introducing those derailers. They are avoidable, but you have to know about them first.
Here are the first 9 derailers.

All first-time parents have experienced the conversation where well-intentioned acquaintances tell us – “everything is going to change.” Frankly, that "advice" isn’t helpful. It sure didn't help me understand how things would be different as a father and as a parent. As a result, I wasn't able to take any actionable steps based on those generic words of wisdom.
