I came across the following article and thought the message, Developing Your Personal Advisory Board, is so similar to how SDA members network and connect with one another that I had to include it in this month’s blog. Collectively, we as SDA members, give and get solid advice and productive feedback from one another, we promote and learn leadership skills to help accelerate our successes, and support each other in our personal and professional goals.
When I was reading this article, it made me think of the offices I have held as a chapter and national officer and serving on chapter and national committees where I’ve learned for myself how SDA is its own advisory board. The criteria above on how to select your personal advisory board is enlightening, which makes me hope and wonder if I am unknowingly on someone’s advisory board.
Do you have a personal advisory board? Who do you call for advice and what’s the best feedback you ever received? Who has encouraged you or inspired you in your personal or professional life? I’d love to hear your stories.
