Do you have a SQUAD?
That’s what I call my Personal Development team that supports me in achieving BIG goals. I wouldn’t be where I am without them and here’s who’s on the list…
Each role has a unique purpose so it’s important to identify people in your life (or want in your life) that match what you need.
I started with this list adapted from Mel Robbins for my squad:
⭐Cheerleader – Roots for you and helps you stay positive when times get tough
⭐Challenger – Points out things you may not WANT to see, but need to
⭐Adventurer – Helps you take action outside of your comfort zone
⭐Motivator – Inspires you with what’s possible, they’ve “been there, done that”
⭐Safe Space – Listens without judgment and holds your confidence
Specifically for career goals, I recommend one more role:
⭐Sponsor – Advocates on your behalf and uses their influence to elevate your status in an organization
Next time you’re charting a course to achieve something BIG, surround yourself with people who believe in you, then CRUSH IT!
💡And consider what role you might play on someone else’s squad.
Helping someone achieve their goal could become one of yours.
