Waldroop is this week's Salary Talk guest and he sits down with Aaron & Wendy for a rather unusual conversation. Instead of doling out tips on what people should begin doing if they want to succeed, Waldroop's book is a list of bad habits people need to STOP doing if they want to get ahead. And some of those bad habits might surprise you.

While it's nice to like the people you work with, keeping the peace at all costs could limit discussion, which puts a lid on new ideas. Likewise for people who always swing for the fences.

This is a great podcast for people who might not even know they're engaging in bad habits, and are constantly wondering why they're not being hired or promoted.
