Race Car drivers have “pit crews” to help them win. On your road of life and career, do you? Will they help you cross the finish line and win?
You are supported by eight different “pit crews” I call “networks.” Optimizing each one will accelerate your career success.
When it comes to career success, the strengths and weaknesses of your other seven networks will
“show up in force.”
Understanding your networks will give you insights into those of your customers and help hone your marketing and sales efforts.
You are the center of a universe of network connections. Anything that happens in any network can ripple-through to impact others because you are the “connector-in-chief.“
Work-life balance is a myth. It is impossible to balance the responsibilities of a career network against the responsibilities of the other seven.
Women, more often than men,
staff the “pit crews” of others: their children, spouses, friends, parents and often, their in-laws and pets.
Each of your networks has a “center of gravity.” Your career with grow faster if you are “below” that center of gravity. If you are “above” that center of gravity it will be difficult to grow higher.
