Are we on the same page?
As the daughter of a teacher mom and a hard-working dad, I am guided by strong values, which I followed both in my personal and my professional life:
I value honesty (even if sometimes truth might be unpleasant – the good news is that it might inspire a positive change), strong work and personal ethics, and accountability for one’s actions.
Listening is a large part of understanding, and the feedback loop is essential.
Mutual respect is vital in any relationship.
I approach every task with a “can-do”/solutions-oriented mind set; setting goals, and then tracking and measuring results are vital steps in any process.
Life is too short to forget what’s really important. A positive attitude is healthy; people perform at their best when they are happy.
It’s important to dream big and have a big picture view of things. It’s also important to develop creative solutions around inevitable hurdles.
Compassion is what makes all the difference in the world. We are all biased, but we are able to learn and love.
