Q: I hate to admit this, but I keep trying to make a co-worker look bad in the boss’s eyes. I’ve neglected to tell him about changes in our procedures and caused him to miss meetings. So far I’ve gotten away with it. Is this par for the course?
A: What course?! Face it, you’re never going to get to the top by making rivals look bad. Sooner or later, you’ll be branded a schemer and your career will hit a wall. Reform yourself while you still can: Focus on your own performance, not on undermining others.
