Inspiring Stories 032 – Dr Lucy Woods – Client Story
Subscribe to the Women In STEM Career & Confidence Podcast on your favourite platform and stay tuned.
Today on the Women in STEM Career & Confidence podcast, I interview one of my clients, Dr Lucy Woods. She joins us from Singapore where she recently started a new role at Bruker as the Commercial Director of APAC.
Lucy has always been very intentional in her career design. Even at A-Levels she had the forethought to pick complimentary subjects to science, rather than a full grouping of the sciences (like me). Completing her PhD was a strategic decision to progress her industrial, rather than academic career. However, being intentional in our careers, doesn’t always mean that everything works out smoothly.
During this episode Lucy talks about:
- The importance of learning self-awareness as a way to restore confidence, after being unsuccessful in an internal promotion.
- Using your career values to actively make choices in your career. In Lucy’s case some interesting decisions about following her value for adventure.
- She also highlights, how understanding her natural talents aided her to build a complimentary team.
- And that we are not alone in our careers. We benefit from a wide range of support including coaches, managers, colleagues, friends and family.
