What to look for in a sponsor:

  • Level up and look for someone that is outside of your comfort zone
  • Someone who will speak on your behalf behind the scenes.
  • Recognizes an emerging leader.
  • Can create a pathway for you to advance your careers.


Benefits of having a sponsor:

  • Your credibility goes up because sponsors will vouch for you and your experience.
  • You can trust that your name is being shared at the table.
  • You will be elevated to the next level in your career.


Finding a sponsor:

  • Look for someone who is different from you.
  • Go outside of your comfort zone.
  • Find someone who will really help you to stretch your goals.
  • Ask for a brief meeting and be clear with your goals and specific with the intention for a sponsor.

“You need to have an intention and you need to communicate that in your communication when reaching out to a sponsor.” -Michele Brown
