You're Unique: You have the rare combination of being very analytical while embracing emotional intelligence. You know how to crunch numbers and make tough decisions that impact people's lives. Yet, you are driven by compassion and ethics. Nothing is ever black-and-white.
You're Data-Driven: You like to take risks and try new things but you make most of your decisions based on good data. You love innovation and the energy that springs for testing new models or technology. Yet, taking ideas to scale is also thrilling. You use data to do both, well.
You're Wicked Smart: You have spent considerable time listening to others and employing the design thinking approach. You love reading and devouring research. You are tech-savvy and always eager to be an early-adopter.
You Get Things Done: You are entrepreneurial and enjoy working in a fast-paced environment that feels more like a start-up than a traditional non-profit. No task is too big or too small. You follow-through, take initiative and get things done. You also value time and positive ROI; you can identify what should be outsourced, delegated or done in-house.
