My mentor, Marcus Bird always says, if you need mentoring, help, advice…in fact anything related to supporting you on your journey, you need to speak up, book a call, book a meeting…just be really clear.
The Squeaky wheel gets the oil!
This is founded on the premise, we’re all adults, and we’re all accountable and responsible for ourselves.
So it is our responsibility to reach out and take action.
It is not your mentor, coaches or practice principals (if you’re a practitioner) responsibility to chase you, push you, force you to get stuff done. They’re role is solely to lead out front, inspire, create opportunity and respond if you want help.
The trick here is to say help when you need it. Don’t hide. There are no mistakes, and you don’t have to get it right.
It’s about how quickly you realize you’re off track and how fast you correct.
And your mentor or practice principal will respond to the call.
So don’t be shy. There are no silly questions. Stand up and stand out, reach out, be heard and the universe will support you.
The squeaky wheel gets the oil.
