Speaker: Carter Cast
soundview webinar speaker

There is new research from Carter Cast that provides insight into why talented people fail to get ahead. Nearly two-thirds of all leaders and managers will derail at some point in their career. That means getting fired, demoted, or perhaps worst of all, “plateaued” where one will never hit the expected level of achievement or performance. 

In this Soundview Live webinar, you will get an inside look at why some people make it big while others, equally experienced, talented, and credentialed, fall by the wayside – all based on Carter’s personal experiences.

What You'll Learn:

  • The five defining archetypes that express derailment traits that cut across gender, and every level of seniority, and that play out everywhere
  • How these archetypes fail and succeed, and how to recognize blind spots that can lead to downfall
  • How to improve self-understanding with new ways to take charge of your career
