Climbing the corporate ladder is a “must do” for any head of household who chooses a non-entrepreneurial career. Each step up the ladder typically means more income and benefits which supports the lifestyle they desire for their families. In addition, advancement often requires more leadership responsibilities.
A person’s first leadership role is generally both exciting and unnerving. Most people do not diligently watch their supervisors throughout their early career making notes of how to lead, and how not to lead, in order to prepare themselves for a future leadership role. Instead, leadership is something most people “fall into” later and figure out as they go along.
