“I like watching people and companies grow”
If there is a problem, you should take responsibility. I want to go for it and be involved. I think clients feel my drive. I am solution-oriented and always cut to the chase. This can be confrontational, but I believe that it benefits the company, people, and the process. I think like an entrepreneur, I have that experience and I love the dynamics of it. It allows me to think about the broader context of a case with a client. “Not wanting to make your point, but offering a solution, that benefits the client”.
My involvement with people and companies means that I am always focused on increasing knowledge (within companies) or learning from situations; you have to share knowledge and insight to grow your business and people. This prevents issues and leads to controlling risks and costs.
