Comcast President and Special Counsel to the CEO, Steve White, continues with part two of "Navigating a Promotion and Organizational Success." In episode 2, Steve, discusses employee growth from an organizational and employee perspective.
Organizationally, he shares how leaders can and should ensure their teams are experiencing growth, fair promotions, and healthy cultures. He candidly discusses the need for termination of those leaders who disrespect employees or are not living the organization's values. He also lays out a process to build systems that break down walls of communication for the overall organizational good.
At the employee level, he offers honest thoughts about work-life balance, referring to it as "work-life integration." He suggests focusing on the long-game and self-reflecting, especially if you failed to receive a deserved promotion. And, for those of you who aspire to be the next President or CEO of a company, he provides realistic feedback - "You won't become president working 100% remotely or 9-5; growth requires an adjustment."
As President of Comcast’s West Division for eleven years, launching his career in 1996 as Regional Vice President, Steve's insight is rich in wisdom. He was responsible for all of Comcast Cable operations in the Western U.S., leading nearly thirty thousand employees, serving almost ten million customers, and driving annual revenue of nearly $18 billion.
