Get your hands dirty

Doing the unexpected feeds the idea that you understand what real work looks like, creates a healthy culture, and established your role as a leader.

Taking on tasks and responsibilities that are "below your pay grade" builds trust and goodwill with your teams. It also squashes the ego.

Choosing a nontraditional career path isn't the easiest approach, but it's one that makes job candidates more appealing to a smart recruiter.

Don't pretend that you don't have obligations outside of the office. Instead, set expectations at work and home to achieve enough balance to thrive in each environment.

By acknowledging your anxiety and moving through the discomfort, you learn how to manage it instead of letting it control you.

A lesser-known company will most likely have more learning opportunities where you can challenge yourself and broaden your scope.

Keep in mind that there's no such thing as a perfect leader. It often means recognizing and learning from the strengths and weaknesses of whoever your leaders are and translating it into skills you can use in the future.
