When it comes to finding a career that’s right for you and good for the world, you have to know your strengths. A key to the success of our Echoing Green Fellows, for example, is their ability to uncover and focus on what they rock at. (They often fill in the holes in their expertise by supplementing them with talented people on their team.) It’s a simple formula for impact. With that in mind, we want to know, what are you good at?
My biggest strength is my ability to “lead from behind.” I consider building the skills and confidence of others on my team to be one of my biggest responsibilities as a leader, and I’m really good at helping others succeed at different components of a project while providing the overall vision and direction. None of the big projects or ventures that I have started have died off, and I think that this is why. I am also really good at listening to others and project management.
