Career Limiting Actions(Aspirations & Accidents)

SLA is the defining force in our deliverables. But what about the CLA (Career Limiting Actions)? Those who are successful, make CLA part of their system and go about it effortlessly. It is the others who need this reminder:

Do’s and Don’t of CLAs:


  • Don’t dress like a walking CLA
  • Don’t say NO to everything
  • Don’t say YES to all
  • Don’t take the moods to work
  • Be up-to-date with the industry
  • Communicate well
  • Criticism is never to be taken personally


  • Never put too much or too little in writing
  • Don’t fight the policy makers or bureaucrats
  • Meetings only if necessary. Keep them short


  • Don’t be over-competitive
  • Don’t gossip or criticize
  • Share your credit
  • Delegate


  • Observe, understand and adapt to boss’s style
  • Always remember boss’s goals and priorities
  • Don’t feed boss’s pet hates
  • Remember the stuff that boss values, both personal and professional


  • Don’t limit to the job description alone. Set higher goals and superachieve.
