Leadership Ladder - making the leap from specialist to leader
Play • 8 min

What can we learn from dating that applies to leadership? The friendship ladder and the relationship ladder are two different things. You can’t move up the relationship ladder and expect the top rung to be a relationship.  It’s a completely different ladder, and you need to jump from the friendship ladder to the relationship ladder (at the risk of falling into the nothingness in between!)

Being technically great at your job is like being on the friendship ladder. The further you progress, we can sometimes think the top rungs are leadership positions. In fact, it’s not the case. Leadership is a whole different ladder! 

Have you (or can you) make the leap from the specialist ladder to the leadership ladder?
