Top Advice

Dare to try something new! To help others is to help ourselves
In my career, I had many opportunities to take up new roles and try something new: from an individual contributor to a team leader, from a team leader to an individual contributor, from R&D to customer support and then to customer-facing and even more! Every time this new change gave me a great opportunity to develop. Why not try something new?
Collaborating with others helps build up relationships and trust. I always found it helped me in another area with other people. So, to help others is to help ourselves.
