I like going into the ‘way-back machine’ to see if what was said then, still makes sense now. To that end, I recently reread a piece called, Beyond Leaning In: What I Learned on the Way to the C-Suite, that was originally published in May 2013. (Okay, so not the waaaaay-back machine, this time…but a good 15 months ago, anyway.)
“While some factors are out of one’s personal control on the way to the executive suite,” it read, “the following tips will put you on the path to a leadership role, no matter what your gender.
- Take on what nobody else wants to.
- Be willing to relocate.
- Be authentic to yourself by telling the truth.
- Find passion in everything you do.
- Be gracious to people no matter their rank.
- Always be curious.
“In any business environment, you must constantly be learning and be willing to learn.”
So whadeya think? Are these still good tips for accelerating one’s career? (I’m thinking so.)
