What does buying a home have to do with a blog on career management? That’s easy: equity.
The great American dream for most Americans is to buy a home, make improvements over time and, hopefully, build equity so that when you sell it, you end up with more money than you invested. That is another way to define the phrase “building value.”
When you develop a targeted network of professional contacts and then invest the time to cultivate relationships that can be a source of useful business intelligence in the future, that is building equity in your career.
Home equity can help you buyer a nicer home, fund a college education or pay for a dream wedding.
Career equity makes it that much easier to find your next better job.
That is the definition of building value. We help managers and executives build value.
