Professional Growth


Professional growth can be uncomfortable because in order to grow as a working person in the world, you sometimes need to replace old inner-defining stories with new ones that expand who you can be.

In actuality, one of the top criteria for job seekers is something that supersedes all of the above: work culture.

Being a great mentee starts with the premise that with enough reflection and remaining true to ourselves, which is far more easily said than done, we each will be able to locate ourselves in this world.

I only grew in all of these skills while being in relationship and receiving support from colleagues, teachers and friends. It’s not the what, it’s the who.

When asked for my advice about growing professionally, I say: do it! Take all opportunities to learn and grow.
