Most successful leaders have a mentor or a coach. It’s easy to lead with overconfidence or ego. “I don’t need help!” but that also shuts you out to helpful advice and maybe even more critical feedback. So today we are sharing how you can find a mentor.
I worked with a woman many years ago, who believed mentors can exist in books. For example, Phil Knight, founder of Nike, penned “Shoe Dog” sharing how he conceived of, founded and made Nike an international brand. He failed many times over, before he tasted success. He also turned life long friends into allies.
We are mourning the death of basketball great Kobe Bryant this week. His book “Mamba mentality:How I Play” https://lnkd.in/ebX66iK shares how he maintained intense focus in both preparation and competition for the game.
My former Bloomberg colleague Rachana Bhide is an organizational psychologist. She started a movement, sharing how women can enlist male allies in the workplace. Read her article below.
