I worry that my teammates might perceive me as…

Cold and perfectionistic

I have really high standards and value competence. When I'm frustrated, I can come off as hyper-critical and nit-picky because I really care about the work and feel a need to control its quality. If you see me showing up this way, call me out. Most likely I need some time to restore my energy.

I learn best by…

doing ithearing someone explain itwriting it downprocessing, then asking questions

When learning something new, I love having plenty of time to process it on my own and follow up with specific questions.

The best environment for me is:

time for deep work in the AM< 2 meetings zero back to back meetings

I'm an introvert who prefers 1:1 praise vs. being called out publicly. My love language is words of affirmation, so a specific and genuine comment about me or my work goes a long way.
