Following the podcast on Monday with Carla Bass and Jackie Barrie, Andy Lopata poses questions to them on the impact of professional relationships on their careers. Carla's father was also in the US Airforce and gave her good advice which she followed throughout her career. Leadership skills came from senior officers she encountered over thirty years. Jackie found relationships that supported and challenged her had most impact. The corporate boss who then became a client; the coach who helped a breakthrough in her career and the accountability partner through lockdown who was her help and conscience. Challenges in relationships for Carla were mainly based on being one of few women in the USAF at the start of her career. Jackie unintentionally upset and lost a good friend by writing about her and this was an important lesson. Carla and Jackie recommended their favourite resources.
