  • Critical thinking skills and experience are required

  • Strong leadership competencies and confidence, including ability to negotiate and influence others in order to assert ideas, gain support from others and persuade/mobilize other people to take action, and resolve issues

•         Ability to remain in constant alignment with team mission while successfully analyzing details (i.e., ability to dive in and understand risks and controls, yet able to summarize big picture and what is really important)

  • Comfortable proposing solutions to challenges with little definition, rather than waiting to receive specific instructions; ability to independently visualize, articulate, and solve complex problems
  • Ability to prioritize conflicting demands to meet other operational or strategic requirements and achieve optimum performance; ability to recognize and willingness to apply a sense of urgency when necessary.
