How I try to show up at work

HumbleResourcefulImaginativeTrustingIndependent

I love to interact with my coworkers, and to get to know everyone personally! I truly enjoy team building and planning events for everyone to relax outside of work! I think a part of being a good employee is to also have an amazing work environment, and I want to help build that. I believe that my work ability and what I produce is a representation of who I am, so I will always put forth my full effort to every task. I do not seek any type of praise, that actually makes me uncomfortable- I'd prefer to have acknowledgement that you are satisfied with what I have to offer. I am quick witted and extremely resourceful! I like to solve issues quickly and effectively. I find myself able to solve issues with some ingenuity, I credit that to my right-sided brain. I play a-lot of video games and that really helped with being able to problem solve with what's in front of you. I'm a super fun co-worker and I am completely free of judgment! I would love my team to come to see me not only as a coworker but as a friend.

My areas for growth

Stays true to own values with integrityInvests and is interested in personal and professional growthMaintains effective work life balance

I am working to improve my effective work life balance. Although I do preach that it is very important to have a good balance to prevent burn out, I find myself constantly thinking about work. I am anxiously waiting for my next assignment and ways to effectively complete each task. I am working hard on trying to enjoy vacation time without the need to check my emails and my phone. I would also like to improve on my personal and professional growth. I feel that my current position I am stagnant but comfortable, and because of my loyalty- it has prevented me from growing. I'm working on this by trying to seek opportunities where it allows me to grow professionally and personally.

How I stand out

Prioritizes common good over self-interestWilling to openly have difficult conversationsMentors and develops teammates for their growthManages feelings of self and others during conflictStays composed throughout conflict or difficult situations

My empathy is my super power. I think it helps with working with others and in stressful situations. I am able to understand how a person feels and to help comfort them. While working in a fast paced environment there can be times of huge tension and stress. I understand how the stress can redirect into frustration when giving directions, or assignments. I never take any criticism personally and try to help calm my coworkers. I like to provide solutions to reassure them that these issues can be fixed.
