Hello! Thank you for visiting my blog. The purpose behind creating "Lady in Charge" is to give a voice to my experience - the young (female) supervisor, manager or director.
I don't meet a lot of people in my same position (25 to 34, female and in management a few years out of university) who face to face don't size you up as competition. In that sense, there really is no "community" that I feel I can reach out to at times, and as any manager knows, it can be lonely being a leader.
My aim is to create a space where I can share what I've experienced (good and bad) and hopefully give others a chance to share their stories too! I will also be sharing books, articles and tools that I think are relevant to being a leader.
I've recently started working at a new company, in a leadership role. I left a great company, a great boss, a great team and great co-workers on top of this...some say I'm a little crazy but I wanted more opportunity to grow my career and unfortunately that meant leaving my last employer.
I consider myself a pretty strong and stubborn person, but I am definitely out of my comfort zone trying to navigate through new systems, new office politics and a new boss!
But...go big or go home right? One of my favourite sayings, and it rings so true in my current situation.
Anyway, look forward to more posts soon! I promise they will be intriguing, relevant and also fun! If you want to learn a bit more about me, click on my bio (above).
