This chapter aims to help the students set a firm course, avoid being battered about in the waves and design for themselves the sacred text of the career business plan. Training courses are all very well to develop their understanding, but for true advancement to occur, what the students need is experience. Every public company is required by law to have a board, and many private and charitable organisations have boards as well. Working for a variety of companies gives the students more opportunities to learn different skills, and they will be exposed to a variety of different people, cultures and ways of working. Success in strategic leadership requires anticipatory skills, such as being able to scan the environment for emergent trends, changes in government policy or technological advances. The best ways to develop insight and expertise in those areas are early exposure and self-development.
