I worry that my teammates might perceive me as…

Critical in a negative way. I tend to be direct but always positive!

Germans tend to be very direct, and years working with these lovely professionals may have contributed to the fact that I'm communicating similarly 😅. This can be perceived negatively if you're unaware, but it's never meant to be negative. Examples: I'll sometimes point out what doesn't work and what could be improved straight away without considering how to phrase it.

How I stand out

Mentors and develops teammates for their growthCollaborates effectively with teammatesCreates warm, caring relationships with teammatesStays true to own values with integrityMaintains effective work life balance

Whenever I talk with a teammate, I truly care about their well-being and am extremely empathetic. I'm all in for transparency and openness and am always willing to help. Over the last few years, I have had a chance to collaborate with people from different cultures, literally from all continents except Antarctica - I couldn't talk to penguins yet :( This experience taught me one important lesson - all is but a matter of perspective. Some words and phrases have different meanings to different people; no matter how clear I think I am, I always keep the lesson in mind and ensure everyone is on the same page.

Things I'd love to learn

I'm always curious to learn more about various cultures and people. :)

It is both fascinating and necessary, especially if you want to understand how people from other cultures think and make the connection with them much stronger.

How I relax

Being in a pub with friends 🍻, hiking, swimming, enjoying awesome food 🥟

I sometimes tend to ask many questions at once 🙈

Be a reminder that one question at a time is the way to go.
