Are you pigeon holed at work?

Are you pigeon holed at work?

By John Mercure. CREATED Aug 28, 2014

We all want to be good at our jobs.

The conventional wisdom is that if we're good at our jobs, we are more satisfied, our bosses notice and we're rewarded financially.

Sometimes just the opposite happens.  It's called the 'Competency Curse'.  It's when workers get pigeon holed into doing tasks they do well instead of doing work that is more meaningful and can lead to professional and financial growth.  It can be incredibly demoralizing.

Sue Shellenbarger is writing about 'The Competency Curse' and how to combat it in this weeks Wall Street Journal.

She talked to us about it.
