Learning your new way to success

Alka Choudhary switched from people centric roles to being a Product Owner, which is an individual contributor role, comprising a different set of tasks and capabilities. She was on the same team she managed before but in new territory now.

Starting off was fairly comfortable, as she already had a working relationship with the team, however part of her role was to perform requirement reviews for a large audience, for which she had to be sufficiently knowledgeable, although she didn't feel this way. She found herself overwhelmed and in emotional turmoil.

After several reviews that didn't go as she planned, she thought: Either I let it drown me or I overcome it. She embraced the challenges and was able to bounce back and rise.

"I was kind of burning myself in those feelings but I was determined to rise, like a phoenix, and the learning carried me forward."
