Strengths I believe that there is no better qualification than experience and age… that being said I believe that the successes I have had are because of the team I surround myself with. I am an extrovert who enjoys working with different people. I am a good manager who is able to direct the team to achieve a common goal. I have an inclusive as opposed to exclusive approach to managing a project. I am a goal driven person and expect the same from the team. I teach, listen, plan and execute. I am loyal and expect the same loyalty from my team. I have passion and compassion. I am able to detect challenges and solve them as soon as they arise. 6
  7. 7. Weakness. I expect people to work at the same pace as I do. I am not a clock watcher and therefore am not very tolerant to people who are. I work to a project and time plan and expect my team to be as dedicated to this as I am. I work at a very fast pace and get irritated when others don’t. Conclusion I believe I shall be an asset to your company. I am up to the challenge to leave a footprint.
