Salary Talk Podcast with Jake Breeden by Salary_Talk published on 2013/03/18 18:47:47 +0000 "Is nothing sacred?!?" According to author Jake Breeden, the answer is "no." Breeden is the author of "Tipping Sacred Cows: Kick the Bad Work Habits that Masquerade as Virtues," and joins Aaron as this week's guest on Salary Talk. At first glance, Breeden's book seems more than a little bit counter-intuitive. After all, it seems backwards to criticize people who are full of passion and creativity on the job. But too much of a good thing can -- and certainly does -- work against you professionally, Breeden argues. While everyone knows and has plenty of criticism for the 7 Deadly Sins, Breeden talks about the 7 Sacred Cows and how they shine a light on the hidden traps that lie between good intentions and great results. His hypothesis will challenge the way you think about work, and you'll end up thinking about unintended consequences of tried and true "positives" in a way you never would have before.
