Now back to the 3 points. Welch was asked for his remarks on how to balance being politically savvy in your career and company with your personal ambitions. He says:
- Have the ability to over deliver. Welch says if you want to be a star in your career, you have to constantly go above expectations. He goes on to say you should be positive that you are over delivering.
- Have a positive attitude. This doesn't mean being Mr./Ms. Sushine. Having a positive attitude is more about having a can-do attitude.
- Don't wear your ambition in a neon light. It's important to work in the framework of the team. He says that if you make your team and boss look good, rewards will come your way.
