But I Don't Want to Be a Manager

There's an assumption that in order to ascend the ladder of success, one must take on the role of managing people, but what if it's not for you? Maybe you know that managing others is not a good fit for your lifestyle or personality or maybe you've tried it and felt like a failure. How do you move forward in your career, continue to learn and grow, take on new responsibilities, and stay engaged? Panelists will discuss the realities of managing people, their own career paths and how they found success and fulfillment without managing people, as well as the challenges and limitations of taking an alternative path.
