Ever wonder if climbing the ladder of success is really worth it? So much competition. So many people to out-perform. So many people to compete for to get the best jobs, the highest raise, the biggest bonus. And that frustrating bell curve! There's a better way. Forget the ladder! Take the Escalator instead.
In this talk Cherie will share my personal experience with the uselessness of climbing the ladder just to find out that you have reached the top only to be miserable and alone. What I have learned through countless experiences in my career is that ladder climbing is a futile way of progressing. There is a more powerful, effective, and satisfying way to achieve success. Take the escalator instead.
The escalator turns what doesn't seem to make sense -- helping others succeed, helping your competitors win, giving away what others are selling - into your golden ticket to success. Join this talk to understand more about why the ladder method does not work long term and how the escalator model can bring more fulfillment, greater rewards, and financial security without the stress.
