BEWARE: When You Outshine the Master/Mistress (even Inadvertently)!

In Robert Green’s famous book, ‘The 48 Laws of POWER’, the very first law he cites is, ‘Never Outshine the Master’. He explains, ‘Always make those above you feel comfortably superior… … do not go too far in displaying your talents or you might accomplish the opposite — inspire fear and insecurity.’
