Very well said – many of those would have been very useful for my past self to have listened to.

The only one I’d add is don’t be afraid to push against the norm – just because some document says it should be done that way (or always has), it doesn’t mean that is the best way forward and one voice can be enough to start that change. It took me years to learn that – that questioning the status quo and asking ‘why’ doesn’t necessarily mean you’re being difficult but it can start a worthwhile conversation.

All the best in your new role – you’ll definitely be an asset for them and I look forward to hearing about your new adventures
