Problem Solving

Day to Day

A great day will start with effective communication of a complex solution to a broad range of people both inside and outside of the Company. My day will be with an "Oprah Moment", when I get to surprise someone with a recognition: award, money, gifts, or a trip.

Skills & Qualities Beyond School

In addition to strong Excel and analytical skills, the most important skills would be the ability to "know your audience" which takes experience. Knowing how to cater your message to a specific person or group of people to address their assumed response before they ask it. The better you can be at this, the less e-mails, meetings and wasted time you have which frees you up to innovate, design and develop new and better programs.

People are the greatest enigma. If you can understand them and know how to solve their problems, you are golden!
