Most students have the aim of leading the organization that they work for or aim to lead an organization that they founded. What they don’t fully realize is that there are many people who are needed to support the leaders of any organization, many people who may or may not be directly on their pay rolls. A lot of specialist consultants and experts are needed to advise the CEOs, specialists who are highly paid and always in demand. Organizations cannot function without them!
