I’m moving from implementation consulting - where details are super important - to a strategy role, working with C suite executives. Got the feedback that I need to think and work less detailed and way more high level/abstract. Any book recommendations to train this skill or get insights how to best think on an abstract level?

I am reading the following -

- Charisma Myth (good read)
- The McKinsey Way (so-so. Feel like it’s a more common sense stuff and general stories)
- Fit for Growth (good read)
- 48 Laws of Power (starting to read and good so far)
- Manipulation: The Ultimate Guide to Influence People with Persuasion (good but kinda messed up)
- Never Eat Alone (good principles but also kinda common sense stuff but still good)

Over 20 plus years with this company my base pay has gone up every couple of years. The biggest growth in my salary has come as a "Bonus pd 1x/yr" which now is over 50% of my cash compensation.

I may have an opportunity for a new position with another company starting around the first of the new year. My concern is that the "bonus" is not paid until March. What to do?
