  7. 7. ‣ Mentor/Sponsor: Everyone benefits from both mentors and sponsors. Even if you yourself are both, you need someone to help guide you on decisions and have your back internally when you are not present. ‣ Continue Education: Even if you have your MBA or advanced degree, things change constantly. Make it a point to take a course once a quarter and learn something new. Share your knowledge with your team and network. Stay Ahead In Times of Change Natalie Benamou
  8. 8. ‣ Take Action: Don’t wait to raise your hand or make sure you have everything on a list of qualifications for a career move. Express an interest in advancement and find out what you need to do and then…do it! Too often we wait for perfection which is unattainable. ‣ Be Responsive: One of the quickest ways to be viewed positively is how you respond to others. Engage, attend, respond and be present. You will be remembered for your contributions to the discussion. Stay Ahead In Times of Change Natalie Benamou
