Who is on your board of directors?

In the October 2010 issue of Essence magazine they focused on women having power in the work place.  One of the articles that jumped out at me was "The 5 People You Need to Have on Your Personal Board of Directors".  As I read the different types of people that you should have, my mind immediately thought of one or two people who already fill one or two of the positions.  The article suggests the following people:

  1. The Company Veteran 
  2. The Spiritual Adviser
  3. The Reality Checker 
  4. The Industry Insider 
  5. The Fun Seeker 
I'm fortunate to have these people in my life.  Do you?  No matter what your profession is, you need to have these people in place to help you learn about the company, keep you in prayer, look at things from a different perspective, keep you abreast of what's new and help you blow off some steam.  If you have have your board of directors in place but haven't formally acknowledged them, let them know how important of a part they play in your professional and personal development.  You might make someone's day a little brighter.  You might even find out that you are on their board of directors too.
