An Interview With Charlie Katz

Recognize the impact you have on others. I always think I’m like everybody else. But as I advanced in my career, I realized that if I say something, I might not be creating an environment for others to speak freely. As I grew in leadership, I learned to take a back seat and to let others speak first, so that they get their view out because mine might not be needed. The best leader builds a team that works cohesively and successfully without them.

I wish I had known how important it was to commit time for myself just to think about the business.

You don’t need to wait for a specific job opening or opportunity to have something handed to you. If you want to learn something new and build your capabilities, you can volunteer, start a blog or a business, program and publish an app, take a class, and put yourself on the path.

I personally enjoy writing and have given myself a lot of opportunities to develop that skill, from writing a blog (which I have now done for…

There is no need to compromise your authentic self.

As an ambitious and assertive woman, I faced any number of biases. I started adjusting to the environment by hiding who I was and flexing my personality to gain acceptance. It really was not needed. One cannot be the best version of oneself unless you bring your authentic self to work every day!
