The Corporate Ladder Vs. The Corporate Carousel

Comments / {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}} Views / Monday, 7 November 2011 00:27


I recently asked a prospective job applicant to MTI what she hopes to achieve at MTI?  “To climb the management ladder,” was her response. My response was, “We do not have a ladder, only a carousel that helps you to go around the organisation”

What we need today is more rounded managers, able to appreciate a 360 degree view of the business. To do so, we must willing to pay a premium not just for every step of the ladder, but for every destination in the carousel and the value it brings.
