Ep #59: Why You Need to Surround Yourself with Leaders Who Inspire You

Did you ever struggle to eat your vegetables when you were a kid?

Sure, your parents told you that vegetables are good for you, but you still didn’t really want to eat them, right?

The same thing can be said for building your network.

Every leadership coach will tell you that you need to develop a network of mentors, sponsors, and high level leaders, but….

…like most busy corporate managers, you put it off until you are suddenly in need of help.

But surrounding yourself with powerful role models isn’t just about asking for help. It is a way for you to be constantly reminded of the leader YOU want to be.

Not sure where to start?

You’re in luck. In this episode of Maximize Your Career with Stacy Mayer, I show you how to start building these connections starting today. As in: you’ll be ready to get to work as soon as you’re done listening to this episode.
