Mo asks Tyler Sweatt: When did you realize that business development was great?
- When Tyler transitioned out of the military, he wasn’t sure which direction to take his career. He cut his teeth at Deloitte where he learned the two basic functions of a business: value creation and value protection.
- You have to figure out which one you need to focus on from a career standpoint. Tyler started thinking about how to build relationships and establish trust since that was the fastest way to grow.
- Tyler found a few partners within the organization that helped him learn the ropes of value creation, and in the process, he got in touch with Toffler Associates. That was where he learned a new approach to consulting that opened up a huge number of opportunities for him.
- Those experiences became unique information that Tyler could share simply by being exposed to it.
- There is no better time than now to invest in yourself and your education. Focusing on your technical expertise, getting exposed to how other businesses work, and growth skills.
- When you’re learning, you should always have the last part be a practical implementation. Test your knowledge and put it into practice.
- Value creation and growth skills are highly transferable.
