Best Career Advice

It really comes down to focusing on what you’re interested in and passionate about. And so there really shouldn’t be a distinction between your job and your interest. For me, they’ve always morphed together. And I think fundamentally it’s about trying to ensure that you’re excited about the people that you’re working with and that you respect them and that you’re learning constantly.”

Career Challenge

As a junior consultant, Lindy had the opportunity to prepare a presentation for a client. She recalls the morning of the presentation:

“I met the managing partner of the firm in the morning, and we were going to drive down to this large Silicon Valley, Fortune 50 company. And I was driving and he was going to flip through the book to get comfortable with it before we went in to present and the entire way down, he starts screaming and ripping pages out of this book that I’ve spent all night putting 20 of these things together. And there were pieces that he did not like, did not approve, did not agree with, that I hadn’t done the way that apparently that was the expectation…But we went in with these slender books and pages littered all over the back of the car that had not made the cut and ended up having a great meeting and the right discussion happened on the client’s side.”
