"In the words of Cap Watkins: “Congratulations. You got promoted – now prepare to suck at a completely different job.”
This is exactly what happened to Jane multiple times in her twenty year career. She has gone from being a designer, to leading a few people, to leading a team, and now as a director, leading multiple teams. The transitions to each of these three stages of leadership were tough, and painful, and yes, she sucked every time she got promoted into a new stage of leadership. In this talk Jane shares her experiences of each transition and talks about the mistakes she made and the lessons she learned, and gives you hard won advice so that when you get promoted you won’t suck at all."
