Always look for a path forward. My goal is to leave a customer/client/teammate feeling good after an interaction even if I haven’t yet solved their problem. I try to set myself in their shoes and look outward, which often helps me with my decision making.
Hands on with lots of questions.
I’m pretty straightforward and love to ask questions. It thats not your style, I can adjust to what works for you.
As long as it’s an organized collaboration, I’m good with any approach.
I like to figure out how quickly the problem needs to be solved and go from there. Is it urgent? Who else should be involved? Define the end goal, find the resources, create a plan and execute. That said, it really depends on the problem that needs to be solved.
I don’t have any preference, but always love positive feedback! A ‘thank you’ goes a long way with me.
Oh this is a big goal of mine. I’m often uncomfortable asking for help, but constantly challenging myself to do so. If I am asking for help, it’s likely that I really need it and have exhausted all other avenues.
People, solving problems, contributing to the team, predicting and solving problems before they happen, mentorship, learning, and growth.
Admin stuff in the morning - I love to check things off my list first thing. An after lunch meeting is great to get me back to work.
How do I feel about getting messages after/outside of hours that are meant for me to see and respond to during active hours
Totally fine. I have pretty healthy boundaries with unplugging when I am not “at work”, so don’t expect a response until I am back.
A private message to check in would probably be most helpful
Undefined expecations, poor communication, lack of empathy, knowing we can do better but not striving to.
To be determined! I love to be a student.
Converting our guest room into my new office. Come spring it will be my garden. Come summer it will be my tan.
Failing. But I fear not trying more.
