Really smart and talented workers can drift over into a minefield of overconfidence – a place the organization really doesn’t want them to be. Unfortunately, the worker may not even realize they’ve drifted onto this dangerous minefield. What causes the drift?

This episode will talk about why this happens and how to combat overconfidence.
