Some of the best partnerships are formed when we consciously think about our talents and the talents that may complement our own.

My Arranger strength allows me to prepare orderly reports with all the needed backup data to support conclusions.

Personal Management Skills – Demonstrate Positive Attitudes and Behaviors, be Responsible, Be Adaptable, Learn Continuously, Work Safely. I believe my LEARNER strength will help me here. I love the process of learning new things and want to continuously improve what I do. My desire to improve showcases my responsibility and my positive attitude
