As women, we find ourselves facing career crossroads all the time. Family transitions, company changes, layoffs/reductions, and even intuitions pulling us in new and different directions can open up moments where we think about which road to take. What do you do when you love your company, but the space for advancement is limited through no fault of your own? One option is to leave; and another, quite viable option is to move laterally — a transition that can be reinvigorating and lead to powerful growth. This is where I found myself at Mindbody, where I have had the rewarding experience of taking on new challenges as a leader of new functional disciplines at the company.

In this chat, I hope you walk away with:

  • Actionable steps to identify new career trajectories
  • How to leverage skills developed for one discipline for another
  • How to build internal champions and align to a business need for advancing new leadership paths
