What do you do when you wake up one day and you find that your Pigeonholed at work? What have all of you done to get yourself out of this, "hole." Are there any tools podcasts that address this specific subject?

Perhaps this would be useful to you:
I think the answer depends on what the pigeon hole is, and how much you contributed to it, and how much you want to get out of it. The fastest way out is to quit and go work somewhere else where they haven't the same perception of you.
The slower way out, speaking very generically, is to volunteer for as many projects as you can, and build relationships with lots of people, particularly those who can make a difference to your career prospects. If you can identify what got you pigeon holed, can you stop doing whatever it was? Can you do less of it?
hope that helps
