The Top Leader's View: A Leadership Labyrinth

Working on my dissertation in Leadership raised an interesting series of questions for me.
1. Is there still a leadership ceiling once you reached the top leadership position?
2. If we're assuming the current position of leadership is the top of the career ladder, does the vision of the Leader change by no longer looking to upward mobility and looking only at the current situation as leading and managing in a labyrinth or maze?
All comments will be respected and greatly appreciated. I think it is important to be conscious of upward mobility and the transition from moving upward to managing all that is before you as the top leader.
There are enormous responsibilities in the top position already when looking at structure, internal environments, external environments, diverse customer global markets as well as workforces, changing technologies and much more. Once in the top position would you even have time to think about upward mobility?
