Leveraging vs. learning
  • If your learning curve has stalled, it may be time to think about your next career move. Assess your growth potential and available opportunities to see if you’re ready for a change.


The blooper reality of transitions
  • The transition process can be fraught with mistakes if you’re not careful. Take the time to learn the business from the ground up to make the adjustment smooth for yourself and your team.


Turning chaos into problem-solving
  • When you make a transition, you don’t know what challenges will come your way. Readiness to accept chaos and solve problems are key elements that will smooth your path.

The value of learning agility
  • A growth mindset allows you to embrace mistakes as a learning opportunity and continuously learn new skills, draw insights and apply their meaning to future experiences.
Late-stage transitions
  • If you’re making a late-stage career transition, lead with your passion and follow with knowledge
The opportunity of learning
  • Learning is lifelong, and taking advantage of the opportunities to expand your knowledge is invigorating.
