1:1with contextwith examplesIt helps me a lot to know the why

I prefer direct and explicit feedback so that I have tangible goals or areas for improvement

Best way to get me excited about something

VARIETY, I love a challenge! to practice a skill or learn a new one.

The best environment for me is:

time for deep work in the AM< 2 meetings deep work time slots only

I find my energy depletes as the day goes on so I work best in the morning without meetings because I also struggle with getting back into the flow after an interruptions or distractions.

Me when sh*t hits the fan

No problemo! I GOTS YOU ;) The pressure of a short timeline helps me make decisions faster. I find I struggle more when I have all the time in the world. But the first thing I do is process, gather questions and once I have the answers I need, I get straight to work.

Something that drives me crazy 😵‍💫 🤬

Unclear instructions. I need you to be very specific with me.

I can't read between the lines, I need you to spell out in black & white exactly what you need from me and when you need it by.
