Managing Yourself | Succeed in New Situations

“For most of the executives and students I coach, the difficulty isn’t in understanding how to introduce themselves, ask questions, or recall names. It is in fighting natural biases against social risk and changing lifelong habits. Real progress comes only through mindful reflection and practice.
