As an executive within a larger company, your success relies upon excelling in an industry and company-wide achievement system that is not your own. To up-level your career is to navigate and wield victories in an external system.

However, to thrive (both at work and on a personal level) means that you must align your own achievement system AND the corporation's. You must find ways to make your success work for you, for your life, for your needs and desires, so that you can show up everyday as your best self. So that you can inspire a team, rather than just managing one. So that you can contribute your piece to creating a culture of innovation, acceleration and meaningful progress within your role, without sacrificing yourself and your life in the process.
