The Way Of The Dragon

Often, career derailment is triggered by missteps in critical situations.

Sometimes it’s just as essential to know what not to do as a leader, as it is to know what to do. Leaders are quick to recognize what they’re doing right, while being oblivious to the things causing them to derail.

For the last half decade, I’ve worked with aspiring young leaders as well as high achieving veteran leaders. I’ve noticed that while there are many things that can lead them to be derailed, some are more common than others.

All too frequently, an exceptional leader encounters a corporate trap door, falls, and then derails. Leaders knowingly or unknowingly step into a critical situation in which even their savviness and experience fails them.

Derailment is triggered by missteps in critical situations. Leaders deal with countless situations each day. Most are benign and familiar, perhaps, routine – situations that can be well-managed with experience and judgment from prior lessons learned.

Other situations may take on greater significance — these are critical situations that may become trap doors. These are moments of truth that carry more weight and special significance in determining a leader’s overall success or derailment.

Sometimes, there is no warning flag, and a situation that was previously deemed as benign can mutate into a high risk situation. Traps can appear naturally. Trap can also be intentionally set. The competitive landscape changes, the pace quickens, the rules of the game change, the signs of change mutate, and past lessons learned become obsolete and lose its relevance in dealing with the mutated situation.

So, how can leaders avoid or prevent derailment? More importantly, how to get back on track after derailing. The fix may be simpler than you think. The secrets lie in my latest ebook:
