Those who complain about meetings and work often contribute the least. When they successfully complete one project, everyone will be aware of it, and because they will have made it a huge deal, people will likely think it is a significant accomplishment.

Those that routinely provide high-quality work are sometimes quiet about their achievements because they are more concerned with getting the job done than with promoting themselves. When they fail, it’s generally because they’re overworked and yet continue to work. They don’t complain or seek aid.

One brags too much, the other not enough.

Self-promotion is a valid professional technique, but it must be complemented by personal and team performance.

Great work counts, but it must be shared with the correct leaders so “silent” geniuses can be recognized, developed, and rewarded.
