Your Career is a Jungle Gym, Not a Ladder with Jessi Shuraleff
Mar 26, 2021 Season 1 Episode 19
John Neral

Jessi Shuraleff is a former Head of Industry at Google who, after 13.5 years, after much reflection, decided to take her career in a new direction. As a caring and empathetic leader, Jessi guided her teams to great success and was on a clearly defined path for more success within her organization. However, like most of us, we seek to do something different to make a more significant impact. 


Jessi shares her wonderful experiences at Google and her mindset around what led her to decide to leave her position in this episode. She shares how taking an internal, lateral position was one of the best career moves she ever made. Jessi also shares her motto for 2021 and how that is helping her explore new opportunities for her family, her life, and her career. 

 

Jessi’s transparency and openness are evident in this episode. If you are considering making a bold move in your career because you know there is something more out there for you, I hope you will listen to this episode.
