36 | Making the Choice to Quit with Coonoor Behal Shine at Work

    • Careers

In this week's episode, I speak with Coonoor Behal.   I had a lot of fun chatting with Coonoor, so much of her story resonated with me and I think will for you as well.  We not only talk about all her different industry experiences, but the importance of discovering your personal values and getting to know yourself along the way.   That's its out to try different things because that is the only way to not just learn what you want to do...but just as important, what you do NOT want to do.  And whether you decide to quit or not, you are making a choice, and that is your choice to make.   What is really amazing is that you realize the whole time she was building a career based on creativity and innovation and just finding a way to bring the two together.
