11 Ways to Rise from Front-line to Top Leadership

#1. Work for a company that promotes from within. Did top leadership at your organization come from within or without?

#2. Outwork everyone. Have an, “… insane commitment to the job.”

#3. Take advantage of opportunities. You never earn your way to the top by doing the same thing over and over. …

#4. Volunteer.

#5. Take on tough assignments. Go where others have failed. Imperfect situations grow your leadership. …

#6. Be willing to relocate.

#7. Have a good mentor.

#8. Read.

#9. Pay attention to what’s going on around you. Listen.

Keep your mouth shut until you’ve taken on responsibility and delivered great results. …

#10. Develop people skills.

#11. Be accountable. Get comfortable being held accountable, if you want to get ahead.”
