The Unspoken Rules of High Performers and High Potentials

What separates top performers from the rest? Why do some get ahead, while others struggle? In this audio-only course, Gorick Ng unravels the mystery by highlighting three critical work expectations that managers rarely express.

Gorick Ng is a career advisor at Harvard College and author of the bestselling book The Unspoken Rules: Secrets to Starting Your Career Off Right. Gorick argues that managers ask themselves whether you demonstrate the “three Cs”:

  • Are you competent?
  • Are you committed?
  • Are you compatible?

Gorick reveals the A+ way to ask for help and the mindset that makes you invaluable. He provides handy scripts for understanding your boss’ priorities and stepping up without overstepping. Finally, Gorick advises on the tricky dance of being a team player without compromising your boundaries.
