Are you eyeing a senior management position at your company? Do you want to rise though the company ladders? Well here are some of the simple steps it takes to achieve this.
Put the company first: Getting to number one involves some trade-offs and the simple concept of hard work, day after day.
Ensure that whoever replaces you in your former position will do a remarkable job so the only direction you‘re left to proceed is upward. This way, you will see many favours come your way.
Do not be selfish with information: Help those beneath you to grow. Then hold yourself accountable to reaching your career goals.
If being CEO is what you want, say it out loud, write it down or tell someone else, such as a friend, confidant or spouse.
Do not blame anyone if you fail to reach your set goal. Be tough and take the responsibility of pushing yourself forward every time. Then watch as you become more and more what you targeted to be, each day.
Don‘t be a suck-up: Not catering to a boss is a prerequisite for any leader. So, if the top is where you want to be, you need to be comfortable challenging management in the interest of delivering for the company, while working to get buy-in from the organization as a whole.
Don‘t be afraid to fail: Leaders aren‘t afraid to take chances, even if they turn out to be mistakes because when you fail, you learn.
Failure should never be an excise to quit. It shows weakness. Never give up. Resilience is an attractive attribute to your seniors.
Just treat people how you want to be treated. People want to talk to somebody who‘s smiling, who has integrity, who‘s respectful, who‘s open. Source: THE INC. LIFE
