Here’s a summary of some of the characteristics of who I am as a person, my qualities and strengths.:
- Adaptable: I’ve found that I can adapt what I do, to learn whatever is required to get the job done, whatever is needed at the time, and do it well.
- Quick learner: Similarly, I have fun getting a grip on new skills and roles and learning, continuing to learn. I don’t want to ever be in a place where I feel like I know it all and can’t keep on learning. That includes growing in personal and working relationships.
- Trainer: I’m a natural trainer, having taught English and computing earlier on, being selected to train users in new systems, and in whatever I do helping pass on what I’ve learnt to others.
- Analytical: My brain is analytical, always sifting through what people say to extract the nuggets of information or ideas or sentiments, and ordering those in my head, jumping from there on how to solve problems or figure out next steps.
- Developing a role: Wherever I’ve worked I’ve developed the role in which I have been employed, expanding and solidifying it, which helps develop the company.
- Loyalty and longevity: I would rather stay longer-term with a company than job-hop.
- Personable: Having worked and lived in three countries, I have been able to adapt to different cultures and get along with all sorts of people. While I’m more of an introvert, I also love being with people. In my work for different companies I’ve continually been working with others in different time-zones.
In early 2016 I went through the Gallup Strengthsfinder Exercise. I’ve included the results on the Gallup Strengths page, adding a few more details to the above list.
