Me when sh*t hits the fan

I like to get feedback when its given…

idc just tell mewith contextwith examplesweekly

Give me feedback whenever you want, just help me understand your perspective so I can put myself in your shoes!

I really admire teammates who are…

Honest when they mess up, social with the team, and make it fun.

Just be straight up with me if you mess up, and don't be a bummer.

The best environment for me is:

space for deep work in the PMback to back meetingsno swiss cheese calendar

I'm a Friday afternoon warrior and love to work then, but please don't feel the need to reply to my emails then unless you're down.

When I'm stressed, you might notice me…

Withdraw a little bit. This isn't anything personal, I promise.

Give me some space in the moment, I'll make sure to check in later. Normally I just need some time to get organized and make a plan of action, but may not realize I just came off like a total hermit.

A fun fact about me is…

I could probably beat everyone I know at Mario Kart.

Something that drives me crazy 😵‍💫 🤬

Unclear communication, vague details, and pings that should be emails.

Pls just email me if we're going to have to ping back and forth more than 4 times. And I will ask for clarity if I need it, so don't worry!

One thing that might surprise you about me…

I find it hard to meld my work personality and my IRL personality.

Over time, I promise I'll act less professional, more 'normal'. But I hear time and time again, "Huh, I didn't expect that" after a year or two of working with me. I am a big time softy and have a weird sense of humor, so there's your sneak-peek into Amelia IRL.

Outside of work, you'll find me...

Also having tea time to end the day - ask me more :)

My Achilles Heel is…

Not being realistic with my workload. I cannot do all the things.

Tell me if I seem stressed - odds are that I haven't stopped to consider it. I promise I'm working on it!

I work best as a…

Some mix of execution and strategy. I love doing tasks and the high-level strategy conversations.

I'm energized at work by…

My core values

Let's do good work and log off on time.

I learn best by…

doing ithearing someone explain it

You will make my freakin day if you…

private praise / thank you!respect my timeshare an idea

I am a big-time verbal appreciator!! I love getting any kind of thanks back, but it may make me blush!

I worry that my teammates might perceive me as…

A chaotic mess!! I promise there is order here!

I can be a poor communicator because I have a lot going on in my head - I'm often thinking through lots of solutions to one problem all at once. You may see me pause and slow down so I can follow one path of thought. If I say something that makes no sense, don't be afraid to tell me!

How I try to show up at work

IndependentReliableAssertiveResourcefulEncouraging

Best way to get me excited about something

Tell me your ideal outcome. It'll help me get on board with your vision!

My areas for growth

Creates warm, caring relationships with teammatesIntentional and strategic project planningClearly communicates purpose and vision

In the quest to ensure my team is a safe and open environment, I want to be a clear and effective communicator that values people's time and efforts appropriately.

How I stand out

Mentors and develops teammates for their growthFosters high performance teamworkPrioritizes common good over self-interestMaintains clear long term vision that drives decision makingStays true to own values with integrity

I like doing things that serve a common purpose and aren't self-glorifying. I want a stranger to be able to look at whatever project I'm working on and say "Wow, yeah, that makes a lot of sense why we should do this!", and I want to help my team feel energized by the work we're doing.
