Education first and always- never stop learning!
Team Development- ability to establish respect and trust in a timely manner, willingness to tackle difficult conversations regardless of how uncomfortable the topic, passion to facilitate learning and to challenge others to step-out of their comfort zone, and a genuine passion to lead people are some of the useful skills that enable me to compete for positions of increasing responsibility.
Career Milestones- patience is critical when establishing long-term career goals. Being realistic in my abilities and having a high level of willingness to accept feedback around performance gaps and shortfalls in both business and executive acumen allowed me to better map out my career path. A commitment that requires personal sacrifice, potential relocations, is something to consider when setting career milestones. The military way of life taught me how to adapt to change, how to achieve success in new and fluid environments, how to earn respect and trust, and to understand the importance of empowering others. Respect, Trust, and Empowering others are the three primary components of my success.
