Do you have “the disease to please” where you are so fearful of disappointing others than you fail to hold them accountable, assert your own boundaries, and say no when it serves your best interests? Are you reluctant to claim your achievements and find yourself over-assigning credit for your successes to others because you fear being perceived as a showboat or a self-promoting jerk? Are you expending too much energy thinking too much about the past, dissecting your mistakes, blaming yourself, and turning regret inward rather than moving on? If so, you are not alone.

Many professional women struggle with these habits and nine other behaviors outlined in the new book How Women Rise written by leadership experts Sally Helgesen and Marshall Goldsmith. These habits keep women back from their next raise, promotion, or job. Kick off Women’s History Month by starting a new chapter in your life. Learn how to break these habits and rise!
