“What you are supposed to do when you don’t like a thing is change it. If you cannot change it, change the way you think about it. Don’t complain.”

Maya Angelou

What is your best C-suite trio in life?

Are you searching for the right Triplett?

What can you do to run and not ruin your life?

The C-Suite?” I said, “No, never heard of it!

“I am sure it is a luxurious suite in a prestigious hotel!” I was screaming internally in my head.

How can I enter such a suite?” I replied.

Hold on, Pal. This is not a regular suite in a luxurious hotel.” he added.

Well, it appears that the C stands for a suite of words like: Club, Closed, Cercle, and Chief.

The highest-level executives in senior management usually have titles beginning with “chief” and ending with “officer”, forming what is often called the “C-suite” or “CxO”, where “x” is a variable that could be any functional area (not to be confused with CXO). The traditional three such officers are CEO, COO, and CFO.

Many of us will not get to that suite ever in our life. No matter how smart, talented, and hard-working we are, we are just never going to make it to that club.

Why is the C-Suite so selective?

It comes down to another C-suite:

  • Choice
  • Chance
  • Change

CHOICE — For most of us, we have limited or no choice in many moments of our lives. It is not about hard work.

Sometimes it is just the system, and the environment we are evolving is not in our favor.

This can translate into unconscious bias, systemic racism, not having the right bloodlines, not being in the right circle.

What can we do about it?
