The Most Important Career Advice

11/19/2020, By Adrian Choo

"The Most Important Career Advice" In my years of Headhunting, a common thread among all the successful Business Leaders I've interviewed is that they've had great Sponsors and Mentors along the way. Besides giving great advice and guidance, these "Godfathers" have been able to pave the way and even push obstacles out of the picture. These people were great resources to learn from as well. I have passively learned skills that can't be taught, from them... Like #ExecutivePresence and navigating #OfficePolitics. How do you find a sponsor or a mentor? It's a long game... Start reaching out to senior leaders, your ex-bosses, and begin nurturing relationships with them. Help them and make yourself indispensable to them. Show them your value. Get them on your side and soon, they'll be helping you in return. Mentors guide you to navigate workplace challenges, give you advice, help you learn new skills, and encourage your growth. Sponsors will advocate on your behalf, actively try to advance your career, and fight for you behind closed doors. Having a good #mentor or #sponsor or both should be an integral part of your #CareerStrategy!
