About this Episode

In today's episode, Lyndsey and Susan are joined by guest Noa Ronen. Here are the questions they discussed:

  • You spent some time in the Israeli Navy after high school. Would you say that inspired you into leadership and coaching?
  • There’s been a number of changes in your career from starting out in the Navy to being where you are now. Change is something that can be difficult and potentially scary for a lot of people. What advice would you give to someone who is looking to make a change in their career, for example into the tech industry?
  • I feel lucky as a developer that I am in a job that I love. How important do you think feeling passionate about something is to being successful in your career, and what drives that passion?
  • In the tech industry, and as developers, we are always doing something, our minds often working overtime. I think sometimes we forget that we’re on overdrive for so long and then sometimes it hits us and we can become burnt out. Do you have any advice for people who may be going through something similar?
  • Another thing I wanted to talk to you about is impostor syndrome. That feeling where you don’t feel good enough or when you start questioning your abilities and whether you’re in the right position. I’ve had it so many times in my own career, and I still do. It’s a normal process to go through and I think it never truly goes away, but how do we learn to accept the feeling and is there anything we should be doing to combat it?
  • You’ve had speaking experience in your career. Public speaking is daunting for many people, do you have any tips for someone who wants to start speaking, at conferences for example?
