Guide to Dealing with International Clients

It is said that when one has achieved success, one’s life would be more difficult. There is a certain theory called the Peter Principle which came from Dr Laurence Peter that states that every employee is bound to be promote if he does well in his job, but his new position will be something he is not really suited for. And the reason for this is that you have done exceptionally well in your previous position since you had the capability to do it and so you can easily complete the tasks. Now you are placed in a higher position where the responsibility is more than the previous one and the tasks are not that easy to do. Still, you may do well in this new position and you will continue to impress your boss and your name is nominated for promotion once again.

At some point in the hierarchy, you will be put in a position which is completely beyond your capability. And then you realize that you were only competent up to the previous job you had. There is no demotion in corporations but sometimes people who get promoted to certain positions will soon find themselves getting less effective as compared to the positions they held before. However, the corporation still continues to function because those people who have not yet reached their levels of incompetence continue to do well in their jobs. This happens only in a hierarchical type of organization but if you run your own business, you will not experience this kind of problems. If you are not able to do things well, you will expect your business to suffer. But if you are successful in it, you should try to venture in international business.
