I am reliable and have been counted on to deliver in high-pressure situations
I pride myself on being known to come through for myself and others. Whether in the world of sport or the workplace, I have always been known as someone people can look to at any moment to come through and deliver.
I am never content

Within the dynamics of a workplace, there will be times when things may be chaotic or overwhelming, and I pride myself on the ability to lock in, focus, and deliver no matter what’s going on around me.
I am coachable and do not take criticism and feedback personally
I take pride in receiving feedback and constructive criticism. In my years of performing in highly competitive environments, I have never mistaken coaching and development as a personal attack. I know that it is a fundamental part of learning and growing.

Oftentimes people will continue to do things their way because they’re afraid to say “hey I am not quite getting this”. I am learning in my journey to set aside my pride and practice vulnerability to get to where I need to go
