Could your communication style use a little work?…Have you had trouble getting along…with others at prior jobs?…Have you been accused of not listening to others?…Would you benefit from personal development…in the form of leadership training, time management,…or a productivity class?…Maybe you ignored the warning signs…of toxic behavior in your past jobs.…Did you do the work of others in the hope…
