Don’t get a mentor in 2011

Interesting alternative perspective from Priscilla Claman in the Harvard Business Review – rather than find mentors, which many people attribute to career success, make the extra effort and find a personal board of directors.

This is certainly going to take more effort and organization on your side, but perhaps being able to choose a group of people for varying reasons, skills and experience might help you more – see the full article and comment stream at HBR – Forget Mentors: Employ a Personal Board of Directors.
