CF and career

James, an adult with CF living in Victoria, talks about his health, his career, and how life’s challenges have helped him build resilience, compassion, and perspective. He speaks about transferring his emotional intelligence developed over many years of admissions and challenges, and using this skillset to manage projects and people in his corporate role. This is a great insight into objectively learning to switch health and personal challenges into life learnings and beneficial transferable skills for people living with CF and any other chronic illness to consider when applying for jobs.
