Throughout my career, I’ve moved on from one organization to another for various reasons. As I was leaping, I wondered if I was doing the right thing, making the right choice, etc. And every once in a while, that small voice of doubt crept in.
But my background and expertise are much broader than that, encompassing the entire talent management lifecycle. Moving to a new organization and new role allowed me to craft the narrative in an expanded way.
There was no direction provided (except the supplier contracts), some processes to implement from Corporate, and a looming start of production deadline 18 months away. Beyond that, I had a blank slate or a whiteboard. I leaned into what I knew and started unpacking everything else unknown.
