There are many things that you should discuss with an adviser. They need to be aware of your goals, so they know how to help you improve. They can’t be afraid to hurt your feelings because you will not be able to make improvements from that. You need to make sure that both of you are working together, using the same processes. Sometimes they, need to be put in the same life scenario as you. Some dedicated trainers make their physiques like their clients to be more empathetic. This type of mentality is helpful to give advice to each other.
Experience is very important, and your adviser should be very experienced in their field. A Martial artist doesn’t become a black-belt in a day You adviser’s value should be in the experience that they have. If you have experience in whatever you want to do, then you wouldn’t need an adviser. The importance of experience in dealing with a Spencerian many times to know what you should do. A coach with a lot of experience knows the best strategy to coach an athlete. Also, the adviser should have no problem giving you references if they are truly a trustworthy business partner.
Anything that you should consider is work ethic. If they have a past in an area of work, then logically everything should be fine. However, that is not always the case. Like stated before, their previous references will tell you what they were like and what they offer to a team. It’s a mutual process of working and communication. Both sides must know the goals of the other to make sure that they are going in the right direction. It’s not a process where your adviser can just be passive and expect to get good results.
Any adviser should have refined skills, this is another part of their value outside. Now in every field, it’s not something that necessarily requires a college degree. However, it is important to note that anyone you are willing to trust should have a substantial amount of credibility. If someone like a treasurer were bad at managing money, a group wouldn’t be able to trust them. Skills are great because there are ways to teach them to you. The passing of skills is usually more valuable than having someone doing it for you because you can use your own judgment.
Goals are very important, so maybe you need more than one person to help you. A big enough workload can discourage and defeat even the hardest of workers. Having a team can make sure that the work is divided, and you can have many different opinions. If you have one adviser and you happen to be in the same place of your goals another can change your sight. Another pair of eyes can give you a different insight into what you and your team can do to be productive. Goals are challenging, but with hard work and determination, anything is possible.
