In my final post in my six part series, I summarize everything into what I was driving our team towards: perfection. Out of the six posts in this series, this is the one I have thought about the most in terms of disagreeing with myself after reflection. Like the rest of the posts, let’s start off with this part of my “words of wisdom” email. Read more

In part five of my six part series, I am going to talk about how to focus on the right solution: people, process, or technology. I personally find this topic interesting because I spent much of my career as a people leader in a technology role and I have a process engineering background. Putting these three experiences together has given me an interesting insight into applying these three topics to leadership and process improvement. Like the previous posts, let’s start with the part of my “words of wisdom email” I sent to my team and then I will reflect back on it.
In part four of my six part series, I am going to discuss the importance of problem definition. This is one of the topics I am most passionate about and will sure to be expanding upon in other posts.

As I did in my previous posts, I will first go through the part of the email I sent my team and then I will self-reflect on what I think now that it is six months later.

Six months ago I made a big life decision – I left a job that I had worked really hard to get to. I left a company were I spent years to build my reputation and develop a network that enabled my success. I left for two reasons, but most people were only aware of one of those reasons. The driving factor behind my departure, and the one that I told everyone about, was I wanted to try out the world of cybersecurity. I had just completed my graduate degree specializing in this topic which is something I have been interested since the first time I heard the term “honeypot” in 2004.
