Do You Have Career Advocates?

We all need them and yet we don’t all have them – and that’s advocates to help us advance our career. So how do you build advocates? It’s really quite simple:

  • Be genuinely interested in the other person. Remember – each person is a human being, not just a conduit to knowledge, opportunities, and support.
  • Find ways to thank, acknowledge, and encourage those around you. You never know when your message could be the lifeline the other person needs.
  • Value yourself with humility. While you may be great, let others recognize that as they get to know you.

So test the water and know that building advocates is a process and practice.

Enjoy the journey and be sure to have fun along the way.
