Author Spotlight: Joe Azelby
Summary: Have you ever heard workplace comments such as, “Jim is a great marketer, BUT he can’t close deals,” or “Rachel works hard, BUT she can’t prioritize”? Of course you have. The workplace is rife with peer assessments that have the dreaded “but” word sitting in the middle of the sentence like a concrete barrier impeding our career advancement. In his new book, “Kiss Your BUT Good-Bye: How to Get Beyond the One Word That Stands Between You and Success,” Joe Azelby and his brother and co-author Bob Azelby elaborate on this career and productivity killer. In this podcast, Joe Azelby, managing director and CEO of J.P. Morgan Asset Management Global Real Assets, discusses the book’s concept as well as the most common BUTs, how a person finds their individual BUT, and how to shrink or cover your BUT.
