Create a Personal Board of Directors
Mentorship is often touted as one of the primary means of furthering your career. But traditional one-on-one mentoring relationships may be a thing of the past. In today’s quickly changing world, you need a personal board of directors — a group of people you consult regularly to get advice and feedback. There’s no need to hold monthly board meetings; just be sure to keep in touch and reach out when you need their individual counsel. Choose diverse people who can each uniquely contribute to your thinking. Be sure to invite people who know more than you about something, are better than you are at something, or offer a different point of view.
