While it is tempting to think of these as mutually exclusive or as a one-time choice, the reality is (as you can expect) a little less clear.
You want to know not just the next step but the reasons behind next steps and how they contribute to a career path.
Explore 4 types of career paths, what is at stake for each, how they matter to you:

I like the simplicity of this video, and I don't disagree with anything they say fundamentally.  In fact I think they are right on the mark with the exception of their use of the word "follower."  They say that Leaders produce followers, but I believe leaders produce leaders.  They may be front line employees who do not lead anyone else, but instead of following they lead out in their sphere of responsibilities.

 

So other than a little nuance in semantics this is a great video.

The First Requirement for Becoming a Great Boss...Courage to Seek Feedback

The First Requirement for Becoming a Great Boss...Courage to Seek Feedback | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

We need to see ourselves as others see us, even when others' perceptions don't match our own.

Risking the possibility of finding out that others don't consider us the capable, well-intentioned bosses we think we are requires enormous courage.

The fact is, you don't know how others see you or whether they trust you, if you don't somehow ask.

John Michel's curator insight, April 2, 2013 5:54 AM

Among the many requirements placed on those who take responsibility for the performance of others, there is one that is rarely mentioned. Yet, ironically, it may be the most important because so much else depends on it.

That fundamental requirement is courage.

To improve individual and team effectiveness, development must focus on the holistic person, not just provide how-to steps.  

Russ Bergeman's curator insight, March 15, 2013 10:49 AM

It may be obvious... but sometimes the obvious needs to be restated so that focus and emphasis remains on what is important... people are the most valuable (and usually the most expensive) resource in any organization. Therefore effectively and efficiently developing people is essential. Notice I said the development of people needs to be “effective and efficient”... A poorly designed and/or implemented personnel training program can have a significantly negative impact on an organization. However, the right training program can have enormously positive impacts at myriad levels of productivity and profitability.
