If you want to get a corporate board seat in 2015, then you’ll benefit from the three power tips to make it happen below!
1. Pay Attention to Your Self-Signals.
Do you have a negative or positive voice that speaks to you as you progress toward your goal this year? Are you overstated or understated? Learn to hear your thoughts, pay attention to your self-signals, and turn off the naysayer within you.
2. Be Aware of Your Choices.
The ability to stretch and the ability to limit yourself this year is up to you. Be consciously aware of the choices you make to achieve your goal. Make your choices specific and doable—actions that will build your confidence. Know what will distract you, and find the courage to say no.
3. Plan a Budget.
Plan a budget to make your goal of gaining a board seat happen this year. The money you spend could be for coaching, networking, and education. Fly out to see that board lead at your expense. Make a 5-minute video that puts your best foot forward with what you bring to a specific board. Those efforts will differentiate you from others.
These tips could work for any leadership position you’re hoping to get in 2015. What tips would you add to the list? What worked for you? Leave a comment and share your thoughts!
