Decisions don’t happen in a vacuum

I recently changed jobs. This was a big decision for me. I had been with my previous company for seven years. My boss didn’t want me to leave. Many people at the company didn’t want me to leave. But I felt the call to go somewhere else and I’m really enjoying my new role at The Soderquist Center for Leadership and Ethics.

Soon after I left, I had a conversation with a friend of mine who had been my sounding board throughout the process. He is also grappling with a possible career move. He told me that after watching me make this very big decision, he now feels empowered and unafraid to make a move if a good opportunity presents itself.

Doing hard things is not just about you, these decisions can also empower the people around you to change their paradigms.
