- Do at least 10% more than you’re asked. There is no substitute for hard work. Doing more will get you noticed by your leader and help propel your career journey.
- Don’t present opinions as facts. Before you say something, make sure you have the facts to back it up. Don’t spread misinformation or confusion.
- Be courteous to people both up and down. Treat your leaders and the people who work with you and for you with respect.
- Don’t knock others, don’t complain, don’t whine about stuff. Stick to constructive serious criticism only. Aim to lift people around you and help them improve.
- Don’t be afraid to make decisions when you have the facts on which you can make those decisions. Make a decision and move forward — no matter the outcome, you’ll know you made the best decision based on the information you had.
- Quantify whenever and wherever possible. Use data to make informed decisions.
- Be open-minded, but also be skeptical. Be open to new ideas and ways of thinking, but don’t just take things at face value. Ask questions and dig deeper.
- Be prompt. Don’t make other people wait for you.
