Building Your Personal Board of Advisors

About This Course

Every rising leader should form a personal board of advisors to help you to navigate your life and career. This board of advisors should contain real men and women who are helping you now, have helped in the past, or have died and whose spirits can still help you.  It also can include animals, characters from your favorite books movies and television shows, and any one else that is not a human being.

The Personal Board of Advisors Template is the tool you will use to keep track of your portfolio of advisors.  You will add new advisors to your board throughout your life. You can also teach people who don’t understand about personal board of advisors that they should have one too. If you think it’s appropriate, you can offer to join someone else’s personal board of advisors and teach them how to use the template.

When you ask someone to join your personal board of advisors, you set expectations about how you would like them to help you, and when and how often you would like their help. You also have to offer them something of value in exchange for their time and advice.

Sometimes members of your personal board of advisors are called mentors.  Regardless of what you call them, remember that Two-Way Mentoring is going on.
