Because my primary focus is on developing and leading successful teams, we succeed across industries, methodologies or budgets. I've worked with amazing professionals who have supported and encouraged me to be my absolute best and to expect that from others. I’ve learned what real collaboration is and how to develop highly functional teams. I strive to understand each person's strengths, to be inclusive and respectful of others, and definitely to have fun doing it. Isn't it time we worked together?
I ramp up quickly to understand the challenges, and break large problems into smaller, more manageable deliverables the team can solve. While I make sure everything is running smoothly, I help cross functional teams of UX, designers and developers provide demonstrative value to users and clients.
I work with people who have different capabilities and lenses through which they view their work. I ensure everyone’s voice is heard so they can contribute in a way that lets them comfortably expose both their competence and personality, and deliver the best possible solution.
I love helping others who are earlier in their careers understand how to leverage their current skills, expand them, and ultimately be able to see more options ahead of them. I do that so they can make choices they didn’t see before.
In addition to practicing this on my projects, I teach others to form highly collaborative teams. They learn lessons like how to “fail fast”, how make large problems smaller, and how to leverage everyone’s strengths on a team. While I can teach a standardized methodology, I also like proposing how and why you might deviate from it to meet your needs.
"Silience" (with that extra i) is a word that describes my leadership style really well. It is “the kind of unnoticed excellence that carries on around you every day”. I strive to surface that excellence in people so they are more aware of their talent, more confident in themselves, and the whole team is stronger together. I believe that when a project ends, clients and team members should feel they have done their best, and their excellence has not gone unnoticed.
