Success is a lousy teacher, it convinces smart people there is nothing left to learn. – Bill Gates
In the immortal words of Marshall Goldsmith, “What got you here won’t get you there.” Early career success is determined by technical competency but as you progress, the reality is that, in most cases, career advancement is determined by factors outside of merit and skill.
At higher echelons, successful leaders not only must learn to navigate at a global level but research demonstrates that leaders with strong emotional intelligence generate far greater results than those without. Like it or not, a fundamental aspect of career advancement is the perception you create. Put another way, “My perception is your reality.” The ability to create the right perception is directly correlated to one’s level of self-awareness because you don’t know, what you don’t know and it’s what you don’t know that can make all the difference in a successful career. With enhanced self-awareness one can engage at a higher level of communication, understanding and perceptual awareness.
