Many people consider quitting a job because they haven’t figured out how to deal with the situations they face. They feel stymied by a lack of opportunities, frustrations with their bosses, or other problems. While there’s likely some truth in their points of view, often employees haven’t taken charge of their talent. They’ve left assumptions about what can and can’t happen unchecked.
The result? They go to another job and the same problems stick with them because they haven’t figured out how to handle them.
