  • You’re a problem solver, having the ability to make the complex simple and help others understand your strategies
  • You’re creative, energized by creating something new
  • You’re strategic, knowing how to prioritize what should be done, and why it needs to be done
  • You’re empathetic, listening first to understand ‘why’
  • You’re resourceful, eager to innovate in environments with sometimes constrained resources
