  • When you encounter a problem, you come up with multiple solutions, weigh the tradeoffs and efforts, identify the best path forward, and exercise good judgment to drive ahead. You have experience in organizational change and turning information and questions into action. You're effectively interacting with people across all levels of an organization and can field questions during a presentation like a pro.
