Ference Lamp on Failure Not Being an Option, Being a Role Model for the Next Generation & Asking for Help

We often hear from participants in our leadership programmes about a common challenge they face – feeling like they’re in the ‘muddy middle’ of their career journey. This is a phase where hard work and dedication don’t seem to be enough to advance your career. If this sounds familiar, you’re not alone.

Introducing “The Muddy Middle” Podcast: A space where we explore this very challenge.

A brand new series to explore those tough spots in your career journey. Advice and stories that help you move from action to awareness to take control of your career.
