You are thoughtful about the ways you communicate and the impact that may have on a client. You have the ability to sense when a conversation is progressing in a positive or negative way and have the confidence to address concerns. When you are passionate about a cause, you are able to rally everyone around you.
- Confident but Self-Critical: You are confident in your skills and the quality of your work product. At the same time, you are not afraid to ask for help and want to constantly be improving. You are looking for professional development and mentorship in order to reach your full-potential in your role.
- Mission-Driven: You want to use your talents to make the world a better place and you are in a rush to do it. You may have worked in education or ed-tech before or your desire to improve education may come through in other experiences from your life.
