Home Business “Help!”


by Sally Schroder

“Help! I need somebody. Help! Not just anybody. Help!,” the Beatles sang in 1965. And they were right: everybody needs help.

I’ve written lately about how we each must manage our careers, initiating efforts that make us better. We must also be proactive in seeking help.

A business school professor offered this advice: “find a mentor.” Mentors help with learning, setting priorities and navigating organizational politics, which accelerate advancement and success.

Sometimes mentors find you, but don’t wait for that. Seek out more senior colleagues. Ask for help. With luck, you’ll “get by with a little help from [your] friends.”

– Kip Caffey, Cary Street Partners
