Charlotte Leads in Big Tech
Charlotte sought Dr. Alford’s guidance while facing challenges as an individual contributor in a major tech company. She aspired to lead a team, but her role level limited her options. Dr. Alford encouraged Charlotte to make a bold decision and become a “boomerang” by joining another organization, excelling in her role, and eventually returning to her original company. By reapplying later, the constraints on level increases were no longer applicable. Charlotte successfully followed this strategy, gaining not only a leadership position but also leveraging life-changing compensation. She is now a well-respected leader within the tech industry.
