By Tim Parmeter on May 17, 2018The desire of many starting out in the corporate world is to climb, climb, climb, the ladder of success. Here's what that means:
- putting in hours of hard work to master your role
- taking on additional tasks to show you are capable of even more
- and making all the right internal connections.
More of the same, and by this, we mean more – more work to master your new role. Every step up the corporate ladder also comes with more time at work, more time away from home, and more extra work to simply stay afloat, let alone be considered for more advancement. To continue having success is hard enough but to outshine all the internal, and external, competition for the next promotion is brutal. Fortunately, you are a rock star and rock stars shine the brightest when the lights come on. Eventually the next promotion comes. Even more responsibilities, a cooler title, and of course more money. For many, this cycle continues as they continue to climb the corporate ladder to the Director level, VP, or even C-suite.
