About You

So let’s start by talking about you –

You are outrageously organized – color-coding, folders and systems are the stuff of dreams. Taking an idea and turning into a timeline of clear deliverables actually sounds like a fun way to spend a day to you! You are incredibly skilled at both micro and macro thinking – making sure the big picture is always moving forward by way of all the tiny details that need to get done.

You also love people – you’re a natural mentor and sounding board and knowing that you helped someone else succeed gives you enormous satisfaction. You love coaching people to do their best, seeing people’s strengths and talents and drawing it out of them even more. You’re naturally pick up on subtle team dynamics and are able to proactively jump in to assuage a concern or just offer a few words of encouragement.

You are an incredible problem solver – you are strategic, clever, and quick on your feet. You’ll be the go-to person when we’re trying to figure out a sticky issue.

You are extremely resourceful and great at playing detective – you can unravel any problem and figure out what’s really going on, what the missing pieces are, and go out and find them.

You do NOT thrive on being micromanaged and love to be given the freedom to excel in your job. Being your own boss within an organization is a dream come true for you.

You are open, direct and straightforward. You believe that honesty, awareness and ownership are the direct routes to problem solving. You’d rather not play the “blame game” but instead just correct the issue and keep moving! You are a solution-based thinker who investigates why things went wrong with the goal of improving the process. You believe that a process problem lies at the root of every apparent people problem.

It is pretty impossible to faze you and you’re able to take a hit and keep rolling – your goal is to get it done, even if the path that gets there isn’t quite the one that you anticipated!
