    'With each step you climb up the corporate ladder, the further down you will go if you fall off......The higher you go, the more you're under scrutiny from those beneath you who think they can do your job better and those above you that think they are paying you too much. If you don't create positive relationships from the word go, those go-getters will take every opportunity to prove that they are more suited to the job.'
