Communication: Icebreaker and Teambuilding Facilitation Techniques  

Software Proficiency

Microsoft - Powerpoint, Excel, Word, Access, Works, One Note, Photo Gallery, Media Center, MS Visual Studio, Outlook, Outlook Express, Windows7, Vista, Earlier Operating Systems.   Employment Security Department Systems - SKIES, GUIDE, Brio, Jas, e-Jas, Acorde, SAVE.   Savvy end user of numerous  software packages.

Decision Making

  Personal Philosophy:  Decision making is the most critical aspect of a persons personal and professional life. It is the difference between failure and success. Identify the purpose of a given decision and discern what exactly is the problem to be solved as well as why it should be solved.  Gather information to evaluate what factors are involved and determine what criteria the solution should meet.  Assess what are the possible solutions, which are best and why.  Whenever possible seek input from others and solicit contributions, because all of us are smarter than one of us.   Make every effort to correctly assess the pros and cons, consequences and repercussions, and determine the best alternative.  These steps lead to transforming the decision into a specific and executable plan of action.  Lastly, the outcome is evaluated and clarity sought about what lessons were learned, because this last step is critical to the development of our decision making skills and judgement.  We learn, we apply, we become transformed.  

Strategic Thinking

Strategic thinking is known as the process of developing and evaluating decisions and actions in light of current and future circumstances.  This involves correctly contemplating the direction you want to go in as well as the results you want to achieve as an individual or as an organization.  As such, I've consulted in the private sector and advised state government executives in the following areas:     -  strategic planning -  strategic alignment -  strategic implementation -  strategic agility

Prioritizing Work

Remains attuned to the level of importance that my manager gives to various tasks and projects.  Shifts priorities accordingly. Prioritizes according to what is imperative and what is important.  Identifies deliverables that I'm responsible for on a daily, weekly, monthly and perhaps quarterly or annual basis. Utilizes reusable templates, which are modified as needed.  Notes items as they happen so that they don’t slip between the cracks.  Also, sets reminders for deliverable deadlines.      


Core belief on supervising and managing:   A supervisor should above all be talented, skilled, and exhibit exemplary behavior.  At the core of every successful organization is the orchestrated assembly of talent.  The key to attracting and retaining that talent is insightful front-line management/supervisors.  Managers/supervisors that like myself, would rather select an employee for talent (recurring patterns of behavior that fit the role) rather than skills or experience.  I believe you can't teach talent, but rather have to select for talent.  Talent can easily be built upon.  However, on the other hand it is often draining to try and infuse something in someone that has no capacity to learn what needs to be taught.   Adding to this, it is critical in the workplace that people know whats expected of them, therefore a supervisor should set proper expectations and define right outcomes rather than right steps.  Over the years I've developed the skill of motivating by building on each persons unique strength rather than trying to fix their weakness. I'm skilled at developing people, and more interested in finding the right fit for each person rather than the next step on the ladder. This is usually always in the best interest of the organization and the individual.
