Of course, there’s nothing wrong with getting a helping hand here and there but at the end of the day, nothing is just going to come to you. When you partner with another type of organization or one that may be more established, look at that as an opportunity to really learn something and grow. We have compiled a list of things you can do before it’s time for you to go back to doing business as usual.

Ask Questions

A lot of people are afraid to ask questions because they don’t want to seem inadequate or unknowledgeable. When you do ask people who know more than you do, it illustrates that you have a real eagerness to learn and respect others who may be experienced than you. Making the effort to seek more information about how things work and alternative approaches or strategies, shows that you are open-minded and don’t just care about one single project.

Make A Note

 While working in a business partnership, it’s important not to just ask those questions but also be proactive when it comes to the depth of the learning process. People often listen to things, but then they go out the other ear. Being an attentive note taker will help you gain a deeper insight into process and practice of a new ability or skill.

`Do Your Research
