Are you a leader? A leader generates his or her own opportunities. Leaders don’t whine and complain about the lack of opportunities to develop their careers.

The following information is adapted from The 7 Hidden Reasons Employee...

Gifts vs. Favors: Why One is POWER & Other is POISON to Your Career
by J.T. O'Donnell - Feb, 2010
