„Seek feedback on a spontaneous basis“

—  Nigel Cumberland
Context: Seek feedback on a spontaneous basis. After you have completed a particular task do get into the habit of asking colleagues for feedback about how you performed. The best feedback is the instantaneous kind where feedback is given as soon as something has happened page 200

„We live in a world in which everything seems to needed now“

—  Nigel Cumberland
Context: We live in a world in which everything seems to needed now and working quickly is normally viewed as a positive attribute in the workplace... Do not let yourself become too frazzled and stressed by doing everything at high speed.

„Not giving up in itself is a form of excelling and would enable you to stand out amongst your colleagues“

—  Nigel Cumberland
Context: So many people give up too easily and as a result they never achieve the level of work success that might otherwise have been possible. People might overcome any hesitation in trying out something once, but in the face of the first setback, rejection or failure the majority of people would not continue and would simply give up. It is impossible to excel in your job and career if you are part of this majority - you would be leaving the minority who would be persevering, trying again and in many cases eventually succeeding. Can you imagine how many other light bulb inventors tried, failed and gave up during the time that Thomas Edison was showing amazing resilience by trying again and again until he eventually succeeded. Not giving up in itself is a form of excelling and would enable you to stand out amongst your colleagues. Page 216

„Give yourself time before rushing to respond to requests from your boss, colleagues and clients“

—  Nigel Cumberland
Context: I once asked a group of young managers in a workshop: would you prefer to work with a friend who never keeps their word or an enemy who does? The entire group said they would prefer to work with enemies, those they could in some sense rely upon. Give yourself time before rushing to respond to requests from your boss, colleagues and clients. Avoid being vague in how you respond. If you are not sure you can do what is being asked of you, do not say “I’ll try and let you know" as people could assume you will be completing the work. Quoted in the National Newspaper, UAE (May 12th 2016) http://www.thenational.ae/business/the-life/reliability-counts-more-than-promises

„There may also be a cost of not acting in the first place and sometimes doing nothing is not an option“

—  Nigel Cumberland
Context: It is not just a question of needing courage to do something. There may also be a cost of not acting in the first place and sometimes doing nothing is not an option, with the challenge being to minimize the potential risks of any choice you do make. page 210

„Very few people can succeed in their careers without having to manage, supervise and lead other people“

—  Nigel Cumberland
Context: Very few people can succeed in their careers without having to manage, supervise and lead other people... virtually everyone is part of a team, and at some point in their working lives they must take a leadership role – if only to chair a team meeting or a project in their boss’ absence. p.2
