The best environment for me is:

time for deep work in the AMzero back to back meetingsmostly team time

I like to get feedback when its given…

emailslack/email okwith kindnesswith context

I like to get feedback when I'm expecting it. With my disability, if I'm in a meeting and receiving unexpected feedback I can have a cry response. I may need to take a break, and I would appreciate a separate meeting to discuss it so I can prepare.

My areas for growth

Manages feelings of self and others during conflictMaintains effective work life balanceStays composed throughout conflict or difficult situations

I have ADHD and it's a super power but it comes with a weakness. Rejection Sensitivity Dysphoria. This means I feel rejection more than others, and these emotions cause huge distress to me. I need to build coping mechanisms into the work place so I can get stronger, but also need understanding from colleagues.

How I stand out

Makes decisions promptly, even with uncertaintyCollaborates effectively with teammatesCreates warm, caring relationships with teammatesPrioritizes common good over self-interestStays true to own values with integrity

My number one goal at work is to drive projects forward. If I'm standing still, I am moving backwards. It's important for me to build a team with great relationships that complement our working styles.
