Christina Attard

The book that helped me the most in determining which pond I wanted to be in was Strengthsfinder 2.0. It focuses on the idea that each person has a very individual set of strengths.

Before focusing on a senior management role, evaluate your strengths and see if this is a chance to broaden or deepen in the area of focus you’re already working in or if it is time to move to a new pond.
