It's happened to many of us.  We go through a first interview thinking we've nailed it but the phone doesn't ring for a second interview.  Sometimes it's due to poor job fit, but at other times there's something we've done which leaves a bad taste in the prospective employer's mouth.  Watch for these problem areas and increase the likelihood of a call-back...

Have you ever tried to get someone to do something he or she didn’t want to do?  Did you try explaining all the mutual benefits, good reasons, rationale, win/win outcomes, and still get nowhere?  Did it leave you wondering what went wrong?

It happens all the time: the outstanding worker promoted to management, the star performer as leader.  Maybe it’s happened to you, or to someone you know.  Maybe it happened to your own boss.  Sometimes it’s a recipe for disaster.

No matter what industry you work in, no matter what function you perform, no matter where in the world you sit, there’s one thing you have to do:  interact with people.  When the interactions aren’t working, the “work” doesn’t happen.  Such problems have a tremendous cost, yet are too often ignored.
