The 6 People You Need in Your Corner
Most days I feel like I’d be lost without the amazing folks who surround me. I’m so grateful for the team of friends, colleagues, mentors, and students who sharpen me and make me who I am.
I think that’s why this Forbes blog on “The 6 People You Need in Your Corner” so resonated with me. The author describes 6 folks that can make you better:
- The Instigator: someone who pushes you and makes you think.
- The Cheerleader: the person who’s in your corner, believing in you.
- The Doubter: the “Devil’s Advocate” who asks tough questions.
- The Taskmaster: the person who demands you get work done.
- The Connector: the networker who helps you develop new relationships and partnerships.
- The Example: your mentor and hero.
As you read these descriptions, I’m guessing there are already folks that come to your mind that fit some of these categories. We can thank God for those people.
But in which of these categories was it toughest for you to think of someone? Why do you think that is? What difference would that person make in your life or ministry? What can you do to nurture relationships with one or more people who fit that profile?
