Not long ago, moving up the ranks was a matter of following a relatively simple formula: land the right role, deliver strong results. Rinse and repeat.
You got jobs primarily through natural progression, internal promotions and taps on the shoulder. You focused on building your reputation through hard work. You earned an MBA, and perhaps did a stint at a top management consultancy. With a sprinkle of good fortune along the way, you had a real shot at the C-Suite.
The Digital Age Changed That.
Job trajectories became less linear. You found yourself in the unfamiliar territory of the job market more often. LinkedIn allowed recruiters to size you up against a much larger pool of candidates. Your 'brand' became important. And Harvard research* revealed that 61% of executives felt unprepared for the strategic challenges they faced at work.
The New World.
Today, the executive role signifies something different – less king of the corporate jungle, more inspirational leader of a vision-driven organisation. Traits like agility, digital shrewdness and leadership now carry more weight than tenure or specific functional experience.
The Fastest Path To The C-Suite.
The path is still the same. But you are required to find answers to more questions along the way.
You’ve realised that you must make smarter career decisions in the face of increasing options. You must be able to sell yourself – online and offline. You must amplify your brand using digital channels. You must evolve your leadership to meet the rise of what Deloitte calls The Social Enterprise**. And you must build a strong network of A-players who are also at the top of their game.
Advice Is Everywhere...
There is no shortage of experts who want to help you get there. Personal branding strategists, career coaches, executive coaches, resume writers, communications experts and networking gurus are eager to offer advice.
...But It Has Limitations.
Each expert’s advice exists in a silo, which means it can miss the big-picture context and nuance of your career - and is likely to fall short. Furthermore, few experts specialise in working exclusively with executives. And even fewer are considered to be thought leaders in the digital realm.
What if you had access to a fully integrated suite of career expertise, hand-built specifically for future-minded senior business leaders?
You’d regain competitive advantage by receiving holistic advice.
You’d have your back covered by trusted advisors who deeply understand needs of business decision makers.
You’d beat your competitors to the future by skillfully leveraging change.
