In this episode of the Anonymous Marketer podcast, host Nick Bennett and guest Corrina Owens, the Senior ABM Manager at Gong, discuss career growth and mentorship. They address two significant questions: how to find a mentor outside of major cities and how to handle a situation where you’ve outgrown your team.
Corrina emphasizes the importance of self-advocacy and being proactive in seeking growth opportunities. She suggests connecting with other leaders within the organization and gaining experience in different business areas. She also encourages individuals to share their unique viewpoints and engage in discussions, which can attract like-minded individuals and potential mentors.
The episode also explores non-linear career paths, highlighting the possibilities beyond traditional roles. Corrina mentions the potential of creating LinkedIn courses or writing books as alternative paths to growth. The conversation provides valuable insights for those feeling stagnant in their roles, offering strategies for personal and professional development.
