I have the great pleasure of speaking with communications leaders every day. What I notice is that those who rise to the top and are sought after as executive leaders have been very deliberate in their careers. They accepted stretch assignments and continued to hone their skills as results-oriented communications practitioners. They were intentional in job moves. They chose great leaders to follow. They built a network early in their career. Long and short, they nurtured their careers over time so that when those choice executive assignments arose, their reputation was known, and the recruiting calls came in.
I also speak to a lot of people in the mid-management level: that ambitious senior manager or director who is looking to grow in his or her career. In many of my conversations with individuals at this level, I hear frustration that the right doors aren’t opening, or they aren’t sure how to be more mindful or proactive about their own career management.
If the latter describes you or one of your direct reports, this program is a worthwhile investment.
