PIE a recipe for long-term career success

A graduate recently asked me what advice I could offer regarding long term career success and I shared with him what a senior leader once told me:

The key to success is PIE: Performance, Image, Exposure (in that order).

Performance alone might be enough in some organizations to progress to the higher levels, but having a great Image or personal brand and Exposure to the right people will increase your chances substantially.
