Overview

Everyone working in an organization has seen unworthy executives advance up the corporate ladder while more competent candidates are overlooked. Why does this seemingly unfair situation occur over and over again?

It is because many dedicated and competent executives concentrate on doing their jobs to the very best of their ability but fail to promote themselves as valuable organizational members.
