Join Brian Myers for an in-depth discussion in this video Surround yourself with other management contacts who can mentor you, part of BIM Management: Techniques for Managing People and Processes.
Many people know me from my online involvement…in various industry communities,…or from my participation in local organizations.…But what surprise people that don't know me very well…is that I'm actually an introvert,…which means while I enjoy participating in these groups,…I often need to make myself go…to social industry events really just for my own good.…These meetings and the contacts that you make at them…have immense industry and oftentimes personal value.…That is particularly true for the contacts that you make…at these events, and not just the event itself.…
If all you do is attend an event without talking…to some of the other individuals that are also there,…you'll lose half the value of the event.…Maybe the individuals inside of your own forum,…or people at other firms,…individuals at other office locations of your firm,…or individuals online.…Be sure to surround yourself…with those people that are pushing the limits…of what could be done in your industry.…Don't be afraid to ask, "Why are you doing this?"…
