Ambition and Effectiveness

Can you do certain jobs well while harboring dreams of promotion?

In a word, no.

There are some jobs - such as ombudsman positions - that require a level of detachment from the organization that would be diluted or filtered by any desire to preserve promotion chances.

Can the same be said of certain responsibilities? Are there not assignments that are career-killers if they are to be done well?
