173: Becoming a Technical Leader Without Learning to Code

Does it feel like there’s only one path to landing your dream role? (hint: there are actually many, my love!)

Let’s talk about becoming a technical leader with the skills that actually light you up!

In today’s episode, I invite Global Information Security Leader & coach, Schlaine Hutchins, to share her unique journey into cybersecurity and how she became a tech leader – without learning to code! We dive into self-doubt & self-belief, managing vs. leading, and how to be better allies to women of color while creating our own unique paths to success. 

Ready to carve your own way to tech leadership?

Let’s go to the show!

We dive into:

  • Schlaine’s unique career journey to cybersecurity leadership
  • How you could be restricting your own career path – and what to do instead!
  • Normalizing self-doubt and working towards more self-belief in your life and career
  • The difference between management and leadership – and why we need both
  • Inclusivity in the tech industry & how we can be better allies
