ASCENSION: This is not a word that is often used; but one that I feel appropriate to use in terms of career advancement. As career builders, we all want to ascend to the throne, or CEO, or President, or Division Chief, etc. That’s the ultimate position of one’s career in the corporate world. I probably would have never ascended to the “seat of power,” in the mega-corporate community on my own merits, so, starting my own business; assured me of ascension to “boss-hood.” This BTW, doesn’t say much for the Young President’s Association. In the Corporate Community – CEO is the most coveted, yet vulnerable, position to have; with one vote and your out threat…always lurking in the background…ask Carly Fiorina, former CEO of Hewitt-Packard, or wannbe Google CEO Ross Levinsohn …booted for being too technical, in favor of the multi-talented, and charismatic, Marisa Meyer. The most important CEO, the Alpha & Omega, the Lord of Lords…is Jesus Christ, and the Holy Trinity. John 14:12 – “Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever believes in me will also do the works that I do; and greater works than these will he do, because I am going to the Father. Hebrews 13:17 – Obey your leaders and submit to them, for they are keeping watch over your souls, as those who will have to give an account. Let them do this with joy and not with groaning, for that would be of no advantage to you. ” Todays advice: BEWARE, the advantages of ACENSION is not, sometimes, worth the price paid. …Blessings…9/17/13
