Corner Office Success: How to Accelerate your Career Trajectory | 2018 Session

Some people’s careers take off, while others’ take longer — or even stall out.  Common wisdom says that the former attend elite MBA programs, land high-powered jobs right out of school at prestigious firms, and climb the ladder straight to the top, carefully avoiding risky moves. But the CEO Genome Project overturned these myths and shows a completely different picture.  This 10-year study, in which more than 17,000 C-suite executives were assessed to analyze who gets to the top and how, revealed more counterintuitive choices that set apart successful CEOs. This session will share the four key behaviors of these success stories and the three types of career catapults that anyone can undertake. Join Shoma Chatterjee, one of the principals of this study, and this panel of executives to learn how to:

  • Fast-track your career by deploying the career catapults used by those who get to the top quickly
  • Overcome the hidden handicaps to getting the job we want.
  • Avoid the 5 hazards that most commonly derail those promoted into a new role.
