Today I interview one of my favorite clients ever - Lori Edwards, a Director at Niche - an ed-tech leader in school search.
If you’re in the first decade of your career and looking to break through the Director level, this conversation can give you the mindset shift that will help you replicate her success, even if you feel stuck and frustrated at the moment.
Lori had spent seven years as a Product Manager when she joined her current startup as a Senior PM. That’s when things got complicated.
The head of her team didn't have a product background, so Lori found herself managing everything and everyone. She was clearly operating below her level. Frustrated at waiting on a promotion that never came, she struggled to figure out why she was not moving up in the company.
Just when she had resigned that there wasn't a role above her opening up anytime soon, she discovered the Denali Executive Accelerator. After the Program and while continuing to work with CareerClimb, Lori received two promotions. She had set her initial goals for a year but achieved them 3 months early.
Today Lori is a recognized leader in her company with a strong team.
In our conversation, I explore the secrets to her continued career success.
