Often when I am contacting by someone to work with me on a one to one basis, they say to me that they are really well rated professionally but are really finding it a struggle to progress their career.
Sadly this is all too common. When I was working in Finance Departments in a range of organisations I had the opportunity to work with people who have since gone on to very senior level roles. However, there were far more who quite simply got stuck at a very junior or middle management level.
So why do professional people who are clearly bright and capable find it a struggle to progress their careers?
