Marcus Buckingham implied that all of us have an informal board of directors (“informal” is my phrase, not his). These are the people who regularly speak into our lives (although they may or may not even know it).
- Some people are helpful. Others are not.
- Some propel us forward. Others hold us back.
- Some are objective. Others are dangerously biased.
The people closest to us will often determine our destiny.
Who currently serves on your informal board? Do they know the important role they play in your life?
