Leadership is difficult. Young leadership is harder. When your peers on Friday become your direct reports on Monday, awkward is often the best-case scenario.

Imposter syndrome and doubt often come with the title; this young leader fought back with radical candor, trust, and empathy.

If you’ve ever found yourself in a peer-turned-leadership position, especially as a young person or first-time manager, you’ll want to hear from Christina Simms. She’s a Customer Service Manager here at Terminus, and she’s a rockstar with her team, many of whom she worked alongside as peers just days before her promotion.

She came on our #FlipMyFunnel podcast and was radically candid about what she’s learned as a young leader in her role.
