Career Tip #4: Choose Who Your Work For
Throughout my career I’ve worked for and with many bad managers, some good ones, and a few great ones. The great ones manage the business well, motivate the team, and make the right calls…but they are also genuinely motivated to help you succeed. They provide air cover to get things done, they look for connections, introductions, development opportunities. They force you to stretch. They share career advice, lessons learned, and best practices.
In short, if you work for the right person they can be 4x more impactful for your career and development (I made that stat up, but now you ‘read it somewhere’).
