‘Staying on point’ – while acting on your carefully crafted Leadership Career Growth Strategy – sometimes requires that you take a step back.

The step back could be voluntary:

  • deciding to take a sabbatical;
  • volunteering;
  • fulfilling a public service or military service commitment;
  • accepting a less complex (smaller) role;
  • pursuing an Executive MBA (or the advanced degree best suited for your particular discipline) or
  • taking the time to conduct a thorough review of your leadership career growth strategy.

The step back could also be involuntary:

  • illness;
  • responding to family needs;
  • lay-off or
  • termination.

It really doesn’t matter the reason.
