I welcome differences and seek out individuals with various backgrounds, skill sets, and points of view. Great ideas can come from anywhere, so I create environments where people feel safe participating and being themselves. I work hard to earn and keep the trust of my peers, stakeholders, customers, and users.
Yes, we all say it, but it’s true. Always be learning! I’m always looking for ways to better myself and those around me. Getting out of my comfort zone and trying new things keeps me inspired.
Many decisions are reversible and can be made quickly without having all the details. Good is better than great, and perfect doesn’t exist. I take calculated risks based on a deep understanding of the user, product, and business objectives and strategies. If you make a mistake, own it, move forward, and learn from it.
As a leader, I have no ego. I know what I don’t know, and I lean on my team to help me strengthen areas where I’m weakest. I also use data, my experience, expertise, and good instincts to make quick decisions and get things done.
