How Leaders Describe a Typical Day at Work

Project Manager - Billing and Regulatory Services ,

Mutual of America

In my role I think communicating may be the most important skill. I need to effectively discuss with my coworkers the strengths, weaknesses, and limitations of our procedures and the tools we use to implement them. My role is largely undefined. I often seek out new projects and am entrepreneurial in order to stand out and help our company achieve its goals. Most days consist of meetings, working on my projects, and continuing to learn from my coworkers.

Process Manager

I work from home, virtually! I spend my time taking conference calls, and working independently. I meet with folks to learn about their needs, and then create processes to help manage these needs. I also spend a lot of my time being creative, and making design elements in Photoshop.
