To grow your career with?
Someone who shares similar viewpoints, philosophies and ways of continuing to achieve greater success together.
I don’t think a mentor would necessarily be the right title, as they might be too far removed.
Not someone you just check in with every 3-6 months.
And this person doesn’t have to be right all the time, rather someone you can bounce ideas off of and they can do the same with you…having healthy debates.
It doesn’t have to be something you ask for, rather it typically comes naturally.
Usually, within the 1st few times of meeting someone, you can probably feel this out based on how conversations flow.
It starts very small and organically expands.
I believe this is one of your biggest multipliers for your career growth.
I recommend someone local to your area, as often these conversations and interactions are more valuable in person.
Occasionally, working together on your own respective projects in a single location.
Ideas will pop up, lessons can be shared and learned from one another.
I don’t think there’s too many other activities during your career that can beat it.
