Skills

Skills

Integrity

This is more than being honest.  This is living up to your values and never compromising those values, even when it might be quicker to do so.  Integrity is shown through honest dealings, predictable reactions, well-controlled emotions and doing what you say you will do – always and every time.  It is also standing up for what is right and asserting yourself if a decision is veering from the corporate values.

Flexible

The ability to adapt to new situations, improvise, and shift strategies to meet different types of challenges.

Problem Solving

The ability to solve all problems efficiently and in a timely fashion without difficulty. 

Interpersonal Skills

Skills used by a person to properly interact with others. In the business domain, the term generally refers to an employee's ability to get along with others while getting the job done. Interpersonal skills include everything from communication and listening skills to attitude and deportment.

Committed

You will do whatever it takes to get the job done.  You will not give up because it isn’t easy.  You find a way to accomplish the goal and inspire others by setting an example of what can be accomplished.

Open

Open to new ideas even when they are unusual and different.  You suspend judgement while listening to others’ ideas and accept new ways of doing things that someone else has thought of.  Openness builds a foundation of mutual respect and trust between you and others.
