You see the bigger picture
You're able to break a large project into bite-size pieces while always keeping your eye on the big goal. You think two steps ahead and can see how complex initiatives connect together for maximum impact.

You find new and efficient ways to streamline processes and create innovative approaches to difficult problems. 

You're so organized, it's embarrassing
You have remarkable attention to the smallest details, meticulous organizational skills. Your closet and kitchen drawers are a testament to this skill: when something doesn’t have a place, you make one for it and teach others to keep it that way. You can manage schedules, inquiries, call logs and desk drawers.

You're a communication ace
You keep everyone in the know so that the job gets done efficiently and effectively. You know when to ask for help, when to listen, and when to speak up. And you're known for your professional candor.

You have a team ethos
