As a high performing individual contributor, if you want to succeed as a leader, is the answer to fit in with “management”, the status quo and lose your own sense of identity in the process? Or can you carve out a great niche your authentic self, lead a security team and still be you? How you move up without compromising yourself?
Transitioning from being a security practitioner to be a leader of a security/ technical team is a path that meanders through insecurities, values, and ultimately growth. It is often about embarking on the unknown where you discover new abilities and qualities like the power of a personal advisory board and fast-fail-forward. For me it is profoundly important to help others take on this challenge and power them to succeed. I will share my personal story, provide guidance, the do’s and don’ts and (look to) create dialogue and inspiration.
