How I try to show up at work

OrganizedFairHard WorkingCreativeReliable

I work best when I have a mix of focus time and collaborative meetings (which I think we definitely have on our team). I can struggle in brainstorms, and feel that "pressure" to come up with "something good" on the fly. I often have an easier time coming up with useful ideas when I have time to think about it, do research, and then chat through with the team.

My areas for growth

Balances internal resources effectivelyMaintains effective work life balanceMentors and develops teammates for their growth

I can be something of a "yes man" when I start a new role, and it leads to me sometimes taking on more than I can handle. Early on in my career I worked at companies with very poor work-life balance and where toxic managers encouraged junior employees to push themselves in unreasonable ways, and I think this is something that still impacts me (though I'm working on it). I want to stop volunteering to take on tasks just for the sake of it, especially when there are others on the team who could have taken it on themselves. I also want to put more thought into how I function in the broader context of the team; areas where I can step in and improve my leadership skills, and where I can add value outside of the day-to-day responsibilities of my role.

How I stand out

I combine creative vision with strategic thinking. I maintain a cool head even in high-pressure situations and almost never miss a deadline.
