Good To Have
Strong leadership skills - You have an ability to organize and galvanize people to achieve a common goal. Able to identify opportunities and move those opportunities forward into action - optimizing risk, innovating to take advantage of those opportunities, taking personal responsibility and managing change within a dynamic environment for the benefit of an organization. You are a tenacious team member who lives for getting tasks and projects across the finish line. You have no reservations in following up with team members on outstanding tasks that may be holding the project up or stands in your way. Once an opportunity has been identified, you work towards creating a value proposition that will enable rapid testing of your key assumptions. Next to effective management of risk (rather than the minimization of risk often sought within corporate environments), you are required to operate with contextual awareness in order to create a value proposition that delivers value to the client while taking into account the organizational requirements and strategic aims. Must have the ability to learn fast and within environments of ambiguity and change while providing clarity and coherence for those around them.
Clarity in Chaos - Chaos is state of confusion and disorder. Some businesses run from environments that are chaotic, we run toward it. For leaders that choose to be in chaotic environments and have any chance of surviving much less thriving, we need to be able to find the opportunities in the chaos and be able to communicate those opportunities. We work in an environment that follows the law of thermodynamics where entropy, everything moves toward disorder, so leadership is fighting this law of nature EVERDAY and being able to have clarity on what the chaos is and how to thrive is core.
being open to the chaos and listening to find opportunities in the chaos
Communicate a path to Success - Following up on Chaos. We work with smart people. Providing a vision of how to succeed in the chaos is important. People see and know about the forces that bring chaos. Leadership is being able to communicate to others about the chaos and the path through it.
Leading the effort to break things down into repeatable processes
Ability to take critiques and course correct - "Greatness is found in the agency of others". A leader is ultimately accountable for the success or failure of a task, mission or expedition. However, a leader must solicit input and criticism to ensure that they have all of the information necessary to ensure a successful mission.
