Systematic: You work methodically and like to create appropriate and effective structures to help you and your team accomplish goals. You excel at implementing, optimizing, and, when necessary, overhauling processes to make the team more effective.

Unwavering attention to detail: You understand the professional standards that our clients expect, and you hold yourself and your teammates to a high bar of delivery. You ensure that every piece of work that is produced under your watch is excellent.

Collaborator: You are empathetic and supportive, winning the buy-in of your team by demonstrating servant leadership qualities. You ensure that your teammates understand their role on the team and that they work well together to achieve the right end result for the client.

Relationship acumen: You begin by listening and asking rather than telling your opinions. You make your teammates feel heard and are able to explain a complex situation or process simply in order to establish buy-in and avoid confusion.
