The Right and Wrong Stuff - How Brilliant Careers are Made and Unmade is an original look into the rules and rituals of business life – why some make it big while others, equally experienced, talented, and credentialed, fall by the wayside – all based on Cast’s personal experiences, fly-on-the-wall observations, and deep research into the topic of career derailment and what high performers do differently than the rest.

Nearly two-thirds of all leaders and mangers will derail at some point in their career. That means fired, demoted, or perhaps worst of all, “plateaued” where one will never hit the expected level of achievement or performance. Professor Cast's research has grown out of personal experience. He opens up to readers how he screwed up along the way to the corner office and then draws pertinent and useful positive lessons that will be of enormous benefit to the rest of us.

Professor Cast's Book will release on the day of the event and will be available at the event for purchase.
