When people talk about leadership in the workplace, they often talk about the kind of leader who possesses strong and inspirational qualities that prompts others to follow that person’s lead. However, not all individuals are cut from the same cloth, and through that same logic, not all people are born leaders. Even more curious is the fact that even those who have exceptional leadership skills may not exactly want to become leaders, particularly if they have to assume such a burden in their hectic professional lives.
Statistics show that, on average, only one-third of any workforce will advance their careers from entry-level positions and into higher management placements. This is, of course, taking into account the amount of time and effort it takes for the lucky few to ascend up the career ladder. But even though it may take a while for an average worker to get from lowly subordinate to top-level executive, it’s certainly a goal that’s not impossible to achieve. That being said, do you have what it takes to become a powerful CEO someday?
