In this podcast we discuss the 3 career path options that consultants face once they become partners. We discuss each career path and what it means for a consultant’s career. These are differences that are crucial to know and understand because partner career paths that appear to be more attractive often lead to disappointing results. For example, did you know it is a really bad idea to emulate the career path of all the McKinsey and BCG partners who appear in the McKinsey Quarterly, BCG perspectives and HBR? This counter-intuitive podcast will explain why.
Many consultants don’t spend enough time analyzing and considering the implications of following each career path. They take a superficial look at who are the partners most known and respected within the firm, and try to emulate those partners. Yet, down the road, they often end up at a dead end.
We further address which partner career path you should follow if your goal is to become a CEO one day.
