  • You’re introspective and a great teammate. You lean into your strongest qualities and work on your biggest opportunities. You pick up balls that are dropping. You roll up your sleeves to do what it takes to move the mission forward. You identify gaps and fill them temporarily, while designing and advocating for the right long-term solutions
