Find support with job sponsors

One job sponsor isn’t enough to provide job security you need in a rapidly shifting business landscape. Center for Talent Innovation CEO Sylvia Ann Hewlett shares tips.

  • Build a “life raft.” For smaller or­­ga­­nizations, a life raft consists of three sponsors: one inside your organization and two outside. For larger organizations, you want two inside, and one outside.
  • Become visible. Sign up to be a mentor or lead another leadership-develop program.
  • Be a joiner. Join community organizations and take on leadership roles to increase your influence.
