  • become known as a “go-to/can-do” individual.
  • be perceived as a “team player.”
  • sense key organizational issues upon which to create early vision, initiatives, and value.
  • identify and appropriately respond to the requirements of superiors/peers/subordinates.
  • be perceived as having organizationally appropriate ethics, values, and beliefs.
