Strengths

STRATEGIC

My mind can simplify complexity and review alternative scenarios to find solutions to problems.

RESPONSIBLE

When I commit to a task, I take on a psychological ownership so that I feel emotionally bound to complete it well and on time.

ACHIEVER

At the end of the day, I must have achieved an objective, otherwise I do not feel that I have accomplished anything.

INDIVIDUAL

I love unleashing the abilities of others by finding out the unique qualities of each person, and then forming them into a productive team.

LEARNER

A life-long learner, I am energized by new subjects, ideas and facts across multiple industries.

CREATIVE

Visualizing and communicating information is a joy for me.
