5 CORE COMPETENCIES: COMMUNICATION, ORGANIZATION, CREATIVITY, LEADERSHIP, RESULTS ORIENTATION
I've worked on my own as a multi-tasking entrepreneur.
I've worked in dynamic teams for major projects and events.
I've worked for huge corporations with complex politics and hierarchies.
I've trained and have been trained by amazing, talented, highly ambitious people.
A few things remain constant about my varied experiences throughout my career, no matter what the circumstance:
1) My team spirit. My 'no man is an island' approach to collaboration and performance culture.
2) My strategizing and negotiation skills. I take pride in a clear sense of direction and creating 'win-win' situations.
3) My desire to innovate; generating ideas and modi operandi that are novel, workable and have high, noteworthy value.
4) My unshakable calm coupled with problem-solving skills; a sensible focus on solutions and progress - the bottom line.
5) My integrity and ethics. You can turn your back on me and rest assured, the job will be done and done well, every time.
