Are you best at day-to-day operations or do you excel more at long-term strategy? Do you appreciate a steady hand beside you or would you prefer to be untethered?
Below I talk about stepping out of your comfort zone with Sylvette Sawyers, who encourages us to know ourselves, and to assess our strengths and weaknesses, while not underestimating the value of asking leadership for what you need to be successful. That’s only one of many great insights she shared during our conversation, and there’s much more where that came from!
We go over her career transition after 10 years leading talent acquisition for Old Navy and then Gap, Inc., into a broader role in the new and rapidly expanding digital real estate company, Opendoor. She took that leap, and faced the challenge with energy, self-awareness, and plenty of lessons learned.
And if you enjoy this podcast, you will appreciate my upcoming session in Orlando in October with Sylvette, as well as David Reed of Vail Resorts, and Tara Noonan Amaral, formerly with Fidelity.
