  1. Have confidence
  2. Connect
  3. Communicate
  4. Cultivate relationships
  5. Collaborate
  6. Challenge – do you have someone who can challenge you and be honest?
  7. Champion – we need to champion those around us who have goals.
  8. Celebrate
  9. Create opportunities
  10. Be consistent – make an intentional point to follow-up
