Achieving and maintaining success is not a one man show. Yes, you must be firmly in the driving seat but need a team to cheer you on. Here are some suggestions of people to enlist onto your team.
Goals helper: Your goals helper should be someone who can and will ask you powerful questions to help you clarify what is most important, how big your goals could be and what investments you should be prepared to make. They might also help you realise what your future might look like if you continued on your current path.
Learning buddy: This is a person possibly on a similar path to yours; someone who believes in lifelong learning and willing to share resources with you, be available to brainstorm solutions with you and encourage you when you are facing challenges. Choose someone who will not compete with you or envy you but will help you learn things that move you forward and pushes you to learn new things.
Performance coach: This person should help you stay the course and remain resilient when the going gets tough. They should help you identify what factors make the real difference to your performance and help you focus on those. They’ll celebrate your wins, talk through any challenges and how to bounce back from mistakes.
Accountability partner: Should be someone who can help you stay committed, eliminate excuses; someone who can help you reflect on your choices, even help you understand yourself better and how you handle situations. The accountability partner will also help you focus on key success areas.
Acceleration ally: This person takes you the extra mile, helps you leverage your talent, stop the things that slow you down and channel your energies for maximum effect. This person helps you realise your full potential by offering practical guidance, thoughtful insights and useful advice. They enable you draw on all your qualities, values, passions and interests to excel and to navigate the stressful times.
