Hey folks, I’m about a year into my new SE career and looking to continue to invest in professional skills.

Friday thoughts on Strengths vs weaknesses: I have been told that I am solid in quant, but need development on the creative side of things - brainstorming, strategic frameworks, maybe even writing. If this situation can be improved, what should I do? books or videos or exercises? This doesn't seem easy to tackle at all... If this just reflects how I am like, does it mean I'm not fit for consulting in the longer haul (looking at SC, PM max)? Or perhaps I should focus on DD type of consulting?

Context: client wants a template for copy input/planning that mirrors a defined UI of an internal L&D platform. The platform only shows a certain number of characters before adding “read more” — & the desire is to limit that
