Here’s how it happened: While working as a team leader at AT&T, his sister died unexpectedly of a brain aneurysm. It shook him so badly, he stopped caring about his work. But his team carried the ball.
At the completion of the project, Schulman told the boss that it was his team, not him, who deserved the praise.
“After that, my career took a whole different trajectory,” he says.
“I found that giving credit to my teammates made my teams much stronger and consequently more successful, which in turn propelled my career.”
