cast_carter_07102017Speaker Series: KFN and Kellogg Alumni CLub of NY - Thursday, March 15th

The Right - and Wrong - Stuff:  How Brillant Careers are Made and Unmade, author & KSM professor, Carter Cast.

Why do some people make it big while others, equally experienced, talented, and credentialed, fall by the wayside? 

One study shows that half to two-thirds of all managers will be fired, demoted, or plateau at some point in their careers. Further, the cost of those derailments to companies can be more than twenty times that of the employee’s salary. 

Join us for an original look into the rules and rituals of business life, all based on Carter’s personal experiences, fly-on-the-wall observations, and deep research into the topic of career derailment and what high performers do differently than the rest.

Enjoy the opportunity to network with Kellogg alumni and have your book signed by Carter (books available for purchase.)
