I’ve mentioned in passing that my job has been in transition lately. I just finished my latest Department Manager assignment of leading 10 managers and over 300 employees, and I learned today what exactly is in store for me. I will be on a four month detail, and I learned some specifics today.
I’ll be working for the Office Of Servicewide Policy in the Penalty Policy function. I will be based out of Fresno but reporting to a Senior Manager in Maryland. They have a number of projects in motion to add me on, mostly to do with cross organizational communication and improving internal feedback procedures.
As it was described, this is opportunity for me to learn and gain new experiences. The conversation I had with the Director was focused more on what he could give me than on what I would give him or what was expected from me. There surely will be expectations, but it was clear to me that there will be long term benefits for my contributions, and that in itself is comforting.
The opportunity sounds challenging, and that’s good. But it’s also got a scary fun kinda vibe too, which is great.
