Virtually every viable economic concern has an advisory board. Savvy project managers are taking a cue and assembling personal “advisory boards” of their own.

Your board can help with everything from getting through a day’s activities to making big strides in career advancement. Identify a mentor in each of the following areas:

  • Professional services

  • Marketing

  • Finance

  • Politics and public relations

  • Extracurricular, work-related activities

Ask the person to act as your “doctor,” “coach,” and “agent”:

  • Your doctor will tell you what’s good for you, even when you don’t want to hear it.

  • Your coach will encourage you when you’re down and push you hard when you need motivation.

  • Your agent will look out for your best interests and give you feedback on how you are received in the workplace
