Q&A with Sarah Watson

I read in an interview of yours that it took you some years to gain confidence & find your voice. How did you go from insecurity to leading w/ confidence?

Wow! Lots of likes - let’s address this. First of all - it takes a while, and it takes everyone a different amount of time. So be gentle with yourself and don’t compare yourself to others. You have to find your voice in your way. And you can’t rush that. When you’re junior you don’t know if the thoughts you’re having in your head are different from what people are saying in the room because your thoughts are wrong or because you’re the only one who is right! There comes a moment when you’ve had enough experience to know that actually the best thing for this team and this business is for you to step forward with your point of view. When you’re ready you feel it in your heart and you just don’t care what people think - you know that you need to make your contribution for the good of the project/team/agency. What really helps along the way are others who say ‘you were right - you should speak up’ and help you get there faster. This is a big topic! I hope that helps...
