Cognitive Skills

Self-Awareness, Motivation, Resilience & Positivity

I invest regularly in meditation, self-reflection and focus to make sure I am aware of my motivation, perspective, biases before approaching something.

Problem Solving

Using critical and logical thinking to break down problems in smaller chunks, questioning assumptions and dogmas to look at it in as many ways as possible and look for solutions.

Teamwork, Empathy, Listening

You cannot communicate well if you don't understand the other person/people's experience, way of thinking, and previous information. Active listening is a key part in making a team and any relationship work.

Results need great tools.
