Who Are You?
You are a problem solver and relationship manager. You thrive under the gun, raise your hand to lead new initiatives and are always eager to lend a helping hand to your colleagues. There isn’t a relationship that you can’t handle, and there isn’t a challenge that you aren’t ready for. At the end of the day, you leave the office feeling confident about your relationships and the work you developed and delivered.
You are committed to delivering exceptional results. You enjoy setting expectations, deadlines and goals, and then blowing them out of the water. Whether you are managing a small, medium or large account, you will put your heart into it and go the extra mile, no matter what. When all is said and done, you are ready for more. You learn quickly from your mistakes and surround yourself with people who you can learn from.
Let’s just say, in a nutshell, big ideas don’t scare you, you like using both sides of your brain, you know how to manage up, and you love being in the weeds.
