What you can learn from Tim Tebow to play corporate politics

March 22nd, 2012 · No Comments

I was channel surfing last night, and heard most of the conference call Tim Tebow had with media last night.

This is a guy who just went through a humiliating drama in Denver. But he didn’t say a single bad word about his former employer.

Here are some quotes from his conference call with the media:

“I’m so excited about the opportunity to play for Jets. They are an awesome organization”.

“I had a great time at Denver. They’re such a classy organization.”

When asked if John Elway kept him in the loop while they were pursuing Peyton Manning.

Tebow said: “You know everything is on ESPN. That’s how I kept track of things just like you guys did. It’s really interesting. You know, Denver is a classy organization. I had a great run. And I’m excited to join the Jets.”

He didn’t take any shot at his former employer. He sounded super excited and positive.

Tebow will make a great corporate employee – the guy knows how to cultivate a positive perception for himself.

If you’re a frustrated, angry and disgruntled employee, I suggest you to watch and/or listen to Tebow’s conference call.

You might have 100% legitimate reason for your frustration at work. But, the moment you show your negative emotion, you’re increasing your chance to lose.

You need to have the discipline, strategic thinking and communication skills to navigate corporate politics, and put yourself into a better position.
