Consciousness-one level is understanding where we are in space. Consciousness two is where we understand our position in society: who's top dog, who's underdog and who's in the middle.

I'm now the elder in the position of doling out wisdom and trying to mend fences.
One must dig deeply into opposing points of view in order to know whether your own position remains defensible. Iron sharpens iron.
When you're in a position to have gotten so much, the gift at this point is giving back.

No matter how talented the employee, think of ways he could grow towards the position he might want to hold two, five, or 10 years down the line.
