I view myself - and believe others would describe me - as a collaborator who's first concern is others. I work to bring out the best of everyone. As a leader, I view a primary responsibility of mine as one of 'obstacle remover.'
I want others to succeed and I take an active role to ensure they do. Others would likely describe me as a good-natured, problem-solver who listens.
I believe I'm viewed a nice guy who takes his contributions seriously, but not himself. I see the good in people and the world. I seek to give of myself where I can.
I've always described my work-self to colleagues and others as "a guy trying to get cool stuff done." I'm pretty aspirational and visionary, but, pardon me for saying so, pretty humble. I don't care about titles, hierarchy, ladder-climbing or one-upmanship. What I care about are people, their aspirations and collaboration.
I want to produce good. Good in my interactions with others, good work, good solutions and good mistakes. In my career, I want to work with good people who are happy because they care about being good. Beginning with themselves, their thoughts, their motives and how they treat others
