Skills

Creativity

I would consider myself to be creative and to think outside the box when it is called upon. Often it is not about working harder but smarter. 

Teamwork

I find working as a team can be incredibly rewarding, you have the opportunity to learn more from others than you can yourself. When I am training someone on a specific process I always tell them that if they can improve my process I'm always open to hearing what they have to say. When you have good solid teamwork in place, it creates an environment for cooperative gain; for the company, employees and the product or service they offer. However, that said I have absolutely no problem working alone as well. 

Adaptability

In my current position I have to constantly adapt to changing work paces, being taken off and on projects on a seconds notice and being able to come back and pick up where I left off. Adaptability isn't only necessary but vital. 

Leadership

As a lead my leadership duties consist of training new employees to solder, instructing those assisting me on procedures, running job orders to keep production flowing, keeping records on employees accomplishments for upcoming reviews. In my area we work hard to do an outstanding job, I hold those who work with me and myself to a high standard, when we fail, I take responsibility for it and work with those under me to make corrections to resolve the issue. I am thankful for these opportunities and hope to receive additional leadership tasks in the future. 

Conflict Resolution

I have not been involved in many of these. For me personally, if I have a problem with someone I will just talk to them about it. I know that we tend to feel that we spend more time at work than at home with family, and because of that conflicts will happen at work. I try to get along with everyone, I don't like gossip. The way I look at it, you don't have to be your coworkers best friend, but you are getting paid to work, I expect myself and others to get along well enough to work together. As for conflicts with leadership, I have had disagreements with leadership, it's my belief that I can voice my opinion but at the end of the day, what they say goes, I respect that.

Self-motivation

I work with very little supervision and I get my work done correctly and in a timely manner. 

Communication

I can understand written and verbal communication without a problem. 

Computer

I'm fluent with computers and what I don't know I can be taught.
