14. Don’t Leave Your Team Behind
Being ambitious doesn’t mean being selfish.
“While it is very important to focus on our personal missions and career goals, the world of work is becoming more and more team oriented,” said Valerie Streif, senior advisor at The Mentat, which hires, interviews and mentors job candidates. “Don’t leave your team behind when trying to get ahead.”
She went on to suggest that pulling others up with you allows you to shine as a leader at the head of a successful team.
“You will be quickly marked for a promotion,” she said.
