A manager I was working with was excited in the hope to finally get the promotion he thought he deserved. He thought he had everything lined up to gain his promotion into the executive ranks—from achieving clear results to having the support of his immediate manager. Unfortunately, and unbeknownst to him, another leader above him blocked his promotion because of a past conflict the two of them had. It took him a long time to recover from this setback, and also cost his company the loss of his motivation and discretionary effort. Getting promoted is a major milestone in one’s career.

In today’s dynamic business environment, talent provides limitless possibilities. The ‘rope’ to ascend in the career path for such talents is always available but one needs to be smart, not to hang oneself (with the rope) in sheer passion, instead of climbing up to the top.
