576: How to Survive Being Labeled a Star
Jennifer Petriglieri, professor at INSEAD, discusses how talented employees can avoid being crushed by lofty expectations — whether their own, or others’. She has researched how people seen as “high potential” often start to feel trapped and ultimately burn out. Petriglieri discusses practical ways employees can handle this, and come to see this difficult phase as a career rite of passage. She’s the co-author of “The Talent Curse” in the May-June 2017 issue of Harvard Business Review.
