Who is whispering in your ear?

Is career success one of your top priorities?  If your answer is yes, then the “who” of who is whispering in your ear is critical. 

Next question, do you have a personal Board of Directors, a trusted panel of advisors who will give you honest and informed guidance about essential decisions, including career advancement?

A personal advisory board is not some hair-brained fad conjured by a career coach.  If you are a regular reader of the Wall Street Journal, you know that the Saturday/Weekend edition feature is Personal Board of Directors.  They profile a prominent business leader and detail their advisors.

As the operational complexity of the business climate evolves and as global competitive interests exert influence in all aspects of our economy, you will need the support of trusted advisors who want to help you succeed.

More on this later this week.
