6 Key Takeaways from my first 90 days as Director of People & Culture

1. Learn how to listen without planning for change

2. Nothing replaces 1-on-1 conversations

3. You can’t let “housekeeping” get in the way (because it will try)

4. What has been completed never feels like enough

5. Big goals at the onset are key to initial success

6. The role isn’t what it seems (and that isn’t a bad thing)

I am grateful for my own due diligence during the hiring process — gently grilling the CEO during my final interview about how this role can prove successful for all involved — to feel secure in my professional goal to work in an organization primed for growth and change.
