Apra-IL presents 50 Shades of Prospect Development; a series of illustrations that seek to provide a visual depiction of the complexities in all aspects of the Prospect Development field. Each colorful image will represent the emotional ups and downs, moments of pride, successful projects and relationships, conflicts with our co-workers/technology/work-life balance, and/or opportunities for growth we find in our careers.
There are issues with communication in every field. Understandably, Prospect Development has an issue with overcoming these one-way communication hurdles. We face obstacles when advocating for professional development, balancing our work and life, and a lack of respect for our work and voice. These burdens can begin to feel too heavy when carried alone. Apra-IL is here for you! We serve as a community of like-minded professionals always willing to meet up, reach out, and assist when asked.
Have you faced any of the above scenarios? How did you overcome? How can Apra-IL help? Let us know in the comments below.
