Sponsors are influential people in your organization or your industry. Sponsors know you well enough to advocate for you and recommend you for new opportunities. With their organizational clout, they can open doors you never knew existed. They could be the key to your career advancement.
I’ve published a free booklet with practical ideas for you to consider as you think about engaging with sponsors. I collected these tips from workshops and discussions I’ve led about sponsorship; they’ve helped others and I bet they’ll help you.
Do you have additional thoughts about engaging and thanking sponsors? Please leave a reply below. I’d like to hear from you!
Interested in more career tips? I offer a series of free publications, each of which is filled with practical ideas for growing your career and clear action items for planning your next steps.
