Early in his career, Carter Cast sat in a tough meeting with his supervisor and learned a hard truth about himself. He says it derailed him for a time and then led to the research to understand what impeded the career progress of talented people. Carter is very candid with Kevin about that meeting and shares his research and about his book, The Right (and Wrong) Stuff: How Brilliant Careers are Made. Carter believes we must understand our own vulnerabilities to work around or manage them, so we don’t sabotage our future.
