Modern careers are not linear, which makes it challenging to know how to navigate…let alone plan. Preparing for leadership roles requires experience, but also personal strengths and qualities which can be developed.
Developing a career in leadership means building up transferable skills, being a skilled networker, and being flexible and open to new opportunities. Sure, there are career ladders around, but a more common route to leadership (and, arguably, one that better prepares you) is by following a career spider web full of lateral moves and leaps of faith.
Rebecca’s career in tech is far from ‘standard’ – in fact, it wasn’t at all intended. What’s more, she never imagined taking on a leadership role, but now wouldn’t have it any other way. She’ll describe what a leadership role involves, share her own career spider web (aka CV), as well as some of the lessons she’s learnt along the way.
