RANT: Beyond escalator

  • Climbing the corporate ladder is not quite like riding an escalator, more like climbing a mountain in the snow. Be prepared to slip occasionally. If you are prepared, and learn from the slip, you can recover, then continue safely onwards and upwards.
  • Working in an ineffective team is rather like walking up an escalator which is going down. Imagine that you're standing in the middle of an escalator, walking upwards. However the escalator itself is moving down at a greater rate than you are walking up it. The overall effect is that you will be propelled downwards, slower than the escalator is moving (because you are walking up), but downwards none the less.
