Female Disruptors: How Desiree Russo is shaking up the construction industry by making her mark in a male-dominated space

Stay focused on what you bring to the table. Focus on you, your growth and helping others. There was a time early in my career when I was working for someone that I did not feel was qualified to be my boss. At the time, I was doing very ego-driven things to showcase these concerns. My actions were actually causing me to fail as they were breaking down the foundation I was trying to build for myself. You can only hide in the weeds for so long; my negative behavior was starting to hinder my goals. Once I realized that I was centering my attention to the wrong area, I re-prioritized my focus back to myself and went back to my roots of being well-grounded. Being able to shift my focus not only helped me move forward, but thrive. Although the journey was a long six months, I can safely say that I will never let anyone define who I become. This experience not only taught me a lot about myself and others, but it solidified the values I believe in and confirmed who I aspire to be as a leader.
