I’ve had more crucial conversations at work in this one year than I’ve had in my entire career. Part of that is because I lead a team and have a leadership role within my department. Part of it is because I lead with my values so I can’t sit by and not speak up, no matter who might not want to hear it.
And, maybe most importantly, I have worked with a coach this year who has helped me clarify the type of leader I want to show up as AND helped me to navigate the nuances, personalities, and culture of where I work. And, as a black woman, navigating those things is exhausting, opaque and riddled with potential land mines.
Tune in to this week's podcast to learn about my journey with coaching and why I intend to have a coach moving forward in my career.
