Playing by the Unwritten Rules

Organised by PrimeTime Business and Professional Women’s Association


Climb from the middle to the TOP

You must have heard of several sports analogies in conversations in the office like,” we are having the kick-off next week “, that sales is a slam dunk, he dropped the ball, let’s tackle this problem etc. Professional Success is a game, and some of the rules are often unknown to women because the game mirrors sports. The game is the culture or spirit of the company that is working to win either with or without you.

The only way to have sustainability in your career is to play the game and to play it by the unwritten rules. This often baffles us as there is no handbook to whip out of your pocket or an on online cheat sheet to winning the game.

This talk is an opportunity for professional women to examine their career and the expectations of their organisation. We will look at the rules of engagement that exist within every organisation, and to discuss how to be a better team member/player to develop their career. The session will help individuals move from the middle to the top by learning how to play by the unwritten rules.

Join us for this interesting 2nd Thursday event that is both educational and entertaining and focuses on leveling the playing field for success.

What are the acceptable norms, values and rules that are unwritten in many organisations?

How to recognize the games that are played in an organization?

What are the various factors that prevent people from truly succeeding?

How to get in the game and SUCCEED .


About the Speaker

Dr Indigo Triplett
CEO, Author and Speaker

Dr Indigo Triplett, CEO of 4D Performance has achieved great success as a leader, author and speaker. She is admired for her down-to-earth methods and techniques, but perhaps more known as an authentic leader who tackles organizational development and workforce topics. Stateside to abroad–from Atlanta, Georgia to Shanghai, China–she delivers a message and philosophy that is insightful; thus, resonating with people at every tier of their career or within an organization.

As the author of Playing by the Unwritten Rules I: Moving from the Middle to the Top and Playing by the Unwritten Rules II: From a Job Defense to a Career Offense, she is a leading authority on career management. Noted for “making the implicit explicit” and injecting humor into her subject matter, she is called upon by nationally recognized magazines, newspapers, television and radio outlets.

Dr Indigo recently launched 4D Performance in Malaysia, which mirrors her US company. Based on her research, she believes that Asia is primed to be the next global economic power. However, she also believes that there must be a shift in how the Asia workforce is prepared for this growth and global competitiveness.

She further believes that a foundation built on performance and productivity will create sustainability. This means leveraging diversity, creating inclusion, developing an agile workforce that is empowered, creative and life-long learners are essential. It is not what a person knows but what s/he is willing to learn that will move an organization forward.

She received her Ph.D. in Values-Driven Leadership from Benedictine University and holds a MA in Organizational Development from Webster University.
