Six Thinking Patterns That Sabotage Executive Performance

While evaluating 953,200 executives in thousands of companies, we uncovered six thinking patterns that sabotage performance.  For example, some executives achieve great results for a while, but their performance is erratic. When they can’t make a difference or don’t receive recognition, they cycle between extraordinarily positive and extraordinarily negative performance.

Others achieve great results, then slip into mediocre performance. They have competing internal drivers and fall prey to an internal power struggle. They rarely achieve remarkable careers because they can’t stomach rejection.  Many are conflict averse.
