I believe that the relationships you have with the people in your life are essential to true happiness. I strongly prioritize my own interpersonal relationships, and it is amazing to be part of a department, team, and company that believes and lives this sentiment.
I am definitely a hands-on learner. I learn best by doing a process myself or by watching someone do a process and trying it after.
I also learn well through writing as long as the written format is digestible/organized, such as in listed in bullet points or as an agenda (versus long paragraphs).
My preferred communication style is written, as it gives me time to review my responses and ensure I get all points across, details communicated, and questions asked.
I am great with verbal communication and do not mind meetings or quick syncs as necessary! I just default to written communication in a work setting because it gives me time to think.
I prefer 1 on 1 meetings or asynchronous collaboration. I am always open to quick meetings as necessary, of course.
If a problem requires a simple solution, such as action on my part, I tackle it head-on. Otherwise, I like to weigh the perspectives of everyone involved in a situation before making decisions or taking action towards a solution.
I prefer to be recognized directly, but definitely do not mind being recognized publicly for my contributions. Being told that my work is appreciated goes an incredibly long way in making me feel accomplished and useful in the workplace.
I almost always lean towards trying to figure things out for myself before asking for help. However, I highly value the knowledge that my co-workers have to provide and am therefore learning to ask for help more often. When I do ask for help, I like to understand the “why” behind the way things are done.
The random socializing that comes from sharing a space (this is hard without a physical office!), building relationships with my coworkers, and being helpful to my coworkers and the organization as a whole.
I focus best and prefer to do solo work in the morning, and tend to prefer having meetings in the late morning/early afternoon.
How do I feel about getting messages after/outside of hours that are meant for me to see and respond to during active hours
Just fine! I have notifications turned off when I am not actively working to ensure I keep my work and personal life separate.
I am not good at expressing when things aren’t going well personally, so if you notice something is off, definitely feel free to ask! I usually just power through when things aren’t going well, so being approached directly helps me feel more comfortable asking for what I need.
Making mistakes that affect my coworkers. I want to help my coworkers as much as I can and highly value—and encourage—feedback in all forms.
Work-wise: making information digestible, organized documentation, coordination, communication
Life-wise: space, psychology, camping
Data analytics, coding, music, off-grid living
My overall health and wellness.
Being alone, as in, no interpersonal relationships.
“You either suffer through the pain of discipline or the pain of regret.”
With ranch dressing! Or plain salt. Or virtually any way (except ketchup). Potatoes and I have had a long, beautiful relationship that no other food has come close to rivaling.
