Congratulations: You’re at the top of your organization or field. CEO, CFO, chairperson, award winner…

Most executives and high-achievers have a predictable narrative as to how they expect their journey to turn out, from moving up the ranks in their organizations to reaching a coveted position, often with a fancy title and all the perks it entails All the while, they push aside the little voice at the back of their mind saying,: “Nobody can stay at the top or in their dream position forever. Life changes. Businesses change. Retirement happens. Then what?”

The talk grew heated, neither side backing down.
