A problem solver – you rise up to the challenge of solving problems you or the team have not solved before. You are creative with solutions and look around corners. Just knowing how to do something isn’t enough, you want to know how to works and how you can make it work better.
Fearless – you are not afraid to raise concerns or risks or make suggestions for change. You are self-reliant, have high judgment, and good instincts. You are comfortable with being uncomfortable and aren’t afraid to ask questions.
Communicator – you make sure the information flows by deciding what information to share and the best way to share it. You ensure there is consistent messaging among all deliverables and channels to internal and external audiences. You wrangle disparate ideas into a well-crafted documents organized around central themes and concepts and present them with confidence.
