Life at the Top
Life at the top is precarious, because it
all depends on who is holding you up.
The aim of this seminar is –
Oh, you don’t want to know. But if you insist, to make your life better despite the fact that you have been successfully working in the opposite direction.
Life at the top, as is sometimes said, is not just lonely. You are the target. It’s unlikely that there is anyone in your organization that wants you to be successful. Keep in mind that no one (except perhaps your mother) thinks well of you. You are surrounded with people who want you to fail so they can move up. You’re damned if you do and you’re damned if you don’t. If you are unsuccessful in your role, there will invariably be people who want to get rid of you. If you are successful, there will be more of those.
So what is the “aim of this seminar”: some golden insights into the realities of life at the top and thus how, in spite of all the attempts made to derail you, you can make a better life at the top (and by the way, just because someone is sucking up doesn’t really make you god.)
The mantra for this seminar is –
Your ego is your enemy.
The how of this seminar centers on –
Learning how and why you are either successful or not in spite of your best efforts in either direction. Thru some fierce conversations about this and providing evidence to the seminar leaders that you don’t know how to read, we will ask you to think as deeply as we can (no spade needed, probably) and to question what is certain in your mind in order to be slightly open to a different perspective which might be efficacious for your life.
Given that your take-aways depends in a seminar on what you are capable of taking-away, the ball is in your court. We’ll see how good you are at pushing back, because (believe it or not – at your peril), you have to play the game well in order to have worthy take-aways.
