You have several years of work experience before YesP, how have you had use of this?
I’m able to quickly, especially in larger organizations, put myself in context and understand what is going on. During my time as a teacher in elementary school, I had many thoughts and reflections on leadership. How do we get people to do their best? All my life, both socially and professionally, I have been in the realm of developing other people. To say Yes and to have faith in others.
When do you have most fun on the job?
When I get to do what I’m best at and I can tell it’s of great value to clients. When there is an environment in which everyone is involved and contributes towards a common goal.
