Be Vulnerable. The people around the table have all been where you’re at and know the answers you need. They can be your best business assets AND your closest friends if you let them…but you need to be willing to ask them for help.
Be Involved. Everyone in the room is busy, but they’re taking the time to try and help you and are also looking to you for your professional and personal insights. Take advantage of that time you’re spending together.
Be A Sponge. Every person sharing this experience with you has a wealth of knowledge. Pay attention and you’re sure to learn a lot!
Be Prepared. Bring questions that are well thought-out.
Be Communicative. Ask about your ideas, concerns and fears, since someone in the room probably has had a similar experience.
Be Honest. It’s the only way to get to the root of any issues you’re dealing with.
