QUOTES FROM THE SHOW
I think there’s a big challenge with the professional development on the people side.
And then I think the other big challenge that new leaders face or leaders in general is there’s such a generation gap.
It’s really rewarding when you see the light bulb go on or you see their confidence build or you see them explore something that they never in a million years would think, “I would really be good at this”.
It’s what support do you need to get the job done that you’re required to do or that you’re you’re supposed to do and how can I support you
It always comes down to how much is this decision of this change going to be in alignment with who you are because when you’re in alignment you’re going to be happier you’re going to be more fulfilled and you’re not going to be second guessing everything as much.
I wish I would have been okay with not having everything so perfect.
One of the biggest mistakes I made early in my career was not having those safe set boundaries where I could really manage my time to the to the best for what was right for me.
