There are several routes to senior management. But only one of them ensures that you'll be successful when you get there. Understanding and following that route will help you rise through the ranks faster, give you a competitive advantage every step of the way, and make you a success when you get that coveted senior position.
Interestingly most successful senior executives don't even realise the route they followed or the shift they made along the way, until they are questioned about it. When prompted, they will tell you that there was a shift in their thinking, and that was the turning point in their career.
