Build an Easy Path to the Top

Bookmark and Share
No, we're not saying to let anybody get to the top of your organization. Make it easy for the right people -- that is, people who fit your company's values to a T -- to get to the top of your company. Meanwhile, don't "laz-i-fy" people at the top. When you do this, you build a culture that allows the best individuals to succeed. Take it for Abraham Lincoln: Initially after the Civil War, American citizens paid 3% tax on income. To promote upward mobility, Lincoln enacted progressive taxation. "The promise of upward mobility was key both to the nation's economic growth and to its social stability. " -Goldman Sachs's Robert D. Hormats The beautiful concept: don't allow people at the top to be complacent, while helping unrecognized individuals at the lower rung to shine -- if they're capable. An organization that strives toward full democratization will succeed in the 21st century.
