How I try to show up at work


I work best as a member of a (relatively) small team where individual members' responsibilities, priorities, and decision-making authority are both a function of collaborative work and also structured/specified and fairly autonomous; a conscious, focused hybrid of a non-hierarchical model and a strictly rigid hierarchical model. I am definitely more "analytical" than not, but I am also able to communicate effectively about why I am passionate about my areas of interest/concern and how/why non-quantifiable/"intangible" factors matter re: strategic and effective decision-making. (Bridging the gap between "hard/soft" or quantitative/qualitative factors.)

My areas for growth

Maintains effective work life balanceIntentional and strategic project planningInvests and is interested in personal and professional growth

In previous roles I have struggled to maintain the most effective work/life balance as work and life demands have changed over time—finding the optimal balance is a constantly-changing goal, but all past information is useful and all past successes build on themselves. Interested to learn more about strategy and effective decision-making at different scales ("micro" vs. "macro" strategy and tactics) and to gain more experience as a decision-maker and working with decision-makers.

How I stand out

Prioritizes common good over self-interestWilling to openly have difficult conversationsMotivated by making community/world impactMaintains clear long term vision that drives decision makingClearly communicates purpose and vision

Effective communication—specifically, communicating complex ideas and dynamics in ways people from all different backgrounds and with varying skill sets can understand, and in ways that highlight and reinforce elements of a larger overall strategic framework.
