Today’s 5 Minute Leader is all about changing an engrained aspect of leadership and career growth, climbing the corporate ladder!

How can you transition from thinking like a handyman—where you fix a path for employees to climb a rigid corporate ladder—to becoming a travel agent who crafts personalized career maps based on individual skills, aspirations, and values.

I’ll discuss the advantages of this approach with examples like Indra Nooryi's tenure at Pepsi, where she prioritized skills and internal mobility.
