Epi 41: Are you Sponsor Ready?

Do you know the difference between a mentor and a sponsor? Unlike a mentor, who mainly offers advice, finding a sponsor or an advocate who helps move your career forward is a game-changer for the corporate employee.

Listen as we share the impact of sponsorship on our own careers and how it can impact yours.
