Tara McFarland’s Adventure: Civil Engineer, Geological Engineering, Dam Engineer

podcast Jun 13, 2022

In this episode, we talk to a former engineer now turned coach, that found her way to helping others now after having some great experiences in a very technical profession. However, she learned that technical skills do not prepare you for leadership roles as you climb the company ladder.

We will listen to Tara’s account of how others had plans and ideas for her life that she followed. From being told to be an engineer because she was good at math and the path that took.

She did find purpose in her work overseeing many Dams in the western part of the US, but she wondered if she was an imposter or fraud when she was placed in some roles.  She had to act qualified to do them, not for others, but for herself.

A feeling that many of us tend to have in our professions.
