LESSON 12: Avoid Common Career-Derailing Network Traps in Transitions

Be alert to network traps that cause otherwise high performers to struggle or derail: the biased learner, the disconnected expert, the formalist and the bottleneck. Role transitions are high-risk times if you are not attuned these common career derailers.

Core strategies:

  • Defend against the tendency to turn to people who you relied on in your prior role.
  • Avoid over-reliance on your past expertise and personal judgment.
  • Don’t overlook or underestimate the value of the informal network.
  • Refrain from becoming overly involved or too-central in the network.
