The third part of our Careertopia formula is “Building Effective Relationships.”
NPR’s Robert Krulwich said it best during a 2012 commencement speech:
When you are trying to create a version of yourself that will one day make you happy, half the battle is know your insides — know your pleasures. And the other half is to know your outsides — to find allies, partners, mentors.
And later in the speech he informs us:
You don’t become yourself by yourself. You become you, boosted on others’ shoulders, buoyed by others’ smiles. You may be a singular person, but your success will always be plural.
For this reason, it is essential that anyone pursuing their Careertopia understands how to build the relationships that will help get them there.
