It is a learning curve this leadership thing. 5 months into the new post and it is beginning to make sense. It is not easy being the hard one ( I am a big softie actually), the nay sayer and the one to deal with problems. It is however, incredibly rewarding and nice to know that I still love what I do just as much, even though I am slightly out of the gang so to speak. All I hope for is the the women in the department share the passion. We would be AWESOME.
