We all have people we admire, and when it comes to career advancement and boss moves, successful leaders have mentors and sponsors who provide the inspiration and guidance.
For me, many power women and men I look up to embody common traits or strengths. Maybe their branding is on point or their career path is admirable. Maybe they have strength in areas where I’m weak, providing much-needed lessons on how to turn them around. Maybe they hold a position where I’d like to be one day, or their interests and goals are similar to mine.
