I spend a lot of time at conferences and meetings, and often am struck by the failure of young professionals to take advantage of the opportunity to meet with senior folks in their field. I think sometimes they don’t recognize how valuable the time could be, even if they engage in short 2-minute conversations with others.
In today’s competitive world, especially in pressurized not for profit and NGO environments, it is important to remember that if we aren’t good to ourselves, we can’t be good workers and employees.
