N2 Growth

Here's an interesting blog, all about corporate careers and how to make the most of them. There's some personal stuff in there as well, (like the one about why I hate spam, something which I think we can all agree with) but also some really rather good advice.

I was particularly taken with one entry on the N2 Growth blog talking about why it is that some people seem to make it all the way to the top while others, apparently better qualified, don't. Given that we've said these others are better qualified it isn't because they have some hidden flaw, rather, it's the way in which they use their networks of contacts, the way in which they leverage them.

I also rather liked the comment on the blog about the saddest thing being the wannabe executive with the rolodex to die for who then never actually uses it. Never really works on the network, never pushes his contacts to boost his own career.

If you're interested in how to make the most of those contacts and skills, attributes and talents, that you already have, then this is a good blog to be reading.
