One of the steps in a coaching program that I’m working my way through is to create an advisory board. The recommendation is that I find at least three people to be on my board including:
– A person who does the same or similar work as I do and can see where I might be going off course.
– Someone outside my line of work who can bring a different perspective.
– A third person who helps with more structural pieces like marketing.
I’m thinking that I’ll add a fourth person, someone who has an independent financial perspective.
We may think that an advisory board is only for businesses. In fact having an advisory board is helpful for any person’s career. You may call these people mentors, champions or advisors. Who’s on your advisory board?
