Gorick Ng is a first-gen college student turned Harvard grad turned management consultant turned author of THE UNSPOKEN RULES.

What will separate you from the rest early in your career? 

The ability to take ownership, manage expectations, navigate people dynamics, and communicate professionally—skills that school doesn’t teach.


Most career guides assume that you already know how the working world works. But if you’re starting your very first job or taking a job in a new company, you might not know all the unspoken rules that determine who gets ahead and who doesn’t. In The Unspoken Rules, you’ll learn the basic workplace skills necessary for success.


After testing the advice I gathered from these hundreds of interviews, I started coaching other early-career professionals. Now I’m distilling everything I’ve learned into a step-by-step guide called The Unspoken Rules. We all have what it takes to be a top performer. It begins with mastering the unspoken rules.”
