A quiet writer, I enjoy listening more than talking. Early on as a corporate communications professional, I was coached to speak up and be more assertive if I wanted to advance my career. Fear was holding me back. I got laid off.
I took a risk and started consulting. My clients listened when I advised and it became easier to share my perspective. Broader roles on more complex projects came my way. Curiosity about human behavior fueled my growth.
Now when I partner with leaders and project teams tackling once-in-a-career projects, it is with deep empathy of knowing staying stuck in fear isn't an option. Courage to move forward happens with encouragement--and wise counsel.
