Initially, the most fulfilling thing for me at the Lab was to problem solve — to be that researcher, that technician, that person who helped figure out other people’s problems — but more recently, as a supervisor, I’m looking at it differently and I’m surprised. I see that I can actually add more value by helping other people grow. I can add 10% improvement on myself, but what if I do that across several people? That’s a greater improvement, a greater value to the Lab and to other people’s careers.
