A. Before you decide, let’s analyze your thinking. So far, you’ve treated each job as a stepping stone. That’s Mistake No. 1. If you’re preoccupied with climbing, that means you’re probably not concentrating on where you are. CEOs often tell us that the people who rise fastest are too busy excelling to crane their necks and plan their ascent.
You also mention your staff of 26. That’s Mistake No. 2. Don’t equate head-count with your importance. Today’s fast-trackers focus on how much profit they generate.
Should you bail? Share your concerns with your boss. See if you can snare some new responsibilities or at least some training. Most companies want to hang on to good people. Your firm may adjust so that you can advance.
