Meet the outsider. You’ve caught an occasional glimpse of him around the office. Capable and resilient, what he lacks in social grace he makes up in cold rationality. Sure, it gets lonely at the top, but that’s the way he prefers it. He is the lone wolf, the recluse, the strong, silent type.
In the climb to the top of the ladder, the line between strength and weakness isn’t always clear. The same rugged independence that helped the outsider early in his career can come off as cold and alienating when he’s stressed, bored, tired, or otherwise distracted.
