What it’s like to work with me?
Please imagine a really smart octopus. Managing one’s company, each tentacle engaged in a different department. That one is not going deep into one section of the business – but keeps tabs on everything. And when things happen, it’s able to jump to the right department straightaway.
My value lies in:
Being the T-shaped generalist. Even though most of my career has been connected with sales and management, there’s much more for me to offer. My knowledge of Business Analysis, UX, Product/Project Management, Finance and Operations, and tech makes me capable of jumping into most of the topics that can arise. Also – when there’s no one who knows how to do stuff – people tend to come to me. Additionally – it seems I’m quite an efficient rubber duck to have a conversation with and bounce some ideas off.
Personality Type – ENTP.
“For many, one of life’s greatest challenges is to translate their wide-ranging intellectual energy into real-world achievements and contributions.”
The need for constant stimulation is strong within this one. I get bored with mundane, repetitive jobs and get excited while faced with new challenges. There’s no single scope of work for me. If there’s a problem to be solved, I’ll get it done.
Who I am a great fit for?
Heard about Chief Operating Officers and Chiefs of Staff? BizOps? Yup, that’s what they are all about – making sure the whole business machine works with the sum of the whole being greater than its parts (or departments in this case I guess).
Got the image? Alright. Now dress that octopus up into the Iron-Man suit.
I want you to imagine yourself the Octopus Iron Man.
I tend to the Servant Leadership mindset (thus, despise micromanagement), focusing on providing a lot of autonomy along with mentoring and facilitating. My goal is to be your intellectual sparring partner, creating solutions out of our discussions and cooperation.
