No one becomes successful alone – we can all point to certain individuals who have played a role in getting us where we are today. Here are 5 people you need to recruit for your personal circle of success.
With so many voices and an equal number of opinions, I find it easy to get caught up and lost in others’ definitions of success. And now, as I find myself in a season of life with a lot “softer” metrics, I find that none of those voices are really speaking to me.

Whether contractually or not, we must hold leaders to a higher standard, because their influence is higher by nature of their position. We must call out bad behavior in our board rooms and demand better. We must measure the success of a leader not just by numbers but by how he/she arrived at those numbers.
All too often, I think we approach collaboration and mentorship with a “survival of the fittest” mentality instead, seeing the pie as a limited size. If the pie can’t grow, then adding more diners will only shrink my piece. This mindset leads to an unhealthy view of personal and professional growth & development.
