Leadership Trajectory Question....HBS related. [#permalink] New post 02 Oct 2004, 05:22
Scott/Omari:

I have a question about my leadership trajectory........My "best" leadership experience happened in the year 2002/2003 - i lead a team that developed a product that has caused a "paradigm" shift in our industry. This product has positioned a Fortune 100 company to go "one-up" on key competitor.

Whiie i've demonstrated leadership throughout (before this event & after this event) my professional career i dont have the "smoothly ascending" leadership trajectory....It's not that the other leadership experiences "before" and "after" these events are sucky. Its just that they dont live up to the same level as my "best leadership experience". I just dont have a "smoothly" ascending leadership trajectory.....

While I've incorporated my leadership experiences throughout my essays (Essay #1 (which was my greatest leadership experience), Essay # 2(other leadership experiences) and Essay # 4 (a different leadership experience...) i just feel somewhat queasy that i dont have the 'smoothly ascending leadership trajectory".....

1) What would you recommend to mitigate this - a not "smoothly ascending" leadership trajectory? How would you show that this isnt an "issue". Do you have any recommendations?

Good question. It's more important to show the multiple dimensions of your character / leadership throughout your essays than to focus on the timeline / trajectory.

The place where I would focus on displaying leadership trajectory is in the resume. There I would try and convey an increase in responsibility over time. Since the resume encapsulates more time and does so in a chronological manner, this should be easier to do than in the essays.
