Thanks for considering us for your next work team!
To best serve you and all candidates, we have identified the following three attributes that would make a great fit for our current opportunity, Quality Supervisor for our Manufacturing Division.
If you have all three (and are prepared to share a good story with us for each) send us your resume and we will absolutely be in touch with a phone call. Respectfully, if you do not, we will not be able to respond, however we are growing so please check back often.
WHO YOU ARE:
PLAYER COACH (Developer)
You build strong relationships that hold a team together and make it greater than the sum of its parts. You see the potential in others. When you interact with others, your goal is to help them experience success. You look for ways to challenge them and all the while you are on the lookout for the signs of growth -- a new behavior learned or modified, a slight improvement in a skill, a glimpse of excellence. For you these small increments -- invisible to some -- are clear signs of potential being realized. These signs of growth in others are your fuel. They bring you strength and satisfaction.
GOAL GETTER (Focus)
You make things happen. You need a clear destination; so each year, each month, and even each week, you set goals. These goals then serve as your compass, helping you determine priorities and make the necessary corrections to get back on course. Your focus is powerful because it forces you to filter; you instinctively evaluate whether or not a particular action will help you move toward your goal. Your focus forces you to be efficient. This makes you an extremely valuable team member. When others start to wander down other avenues, you bring them back to the main road. You keep everyone on point.
You absorb and analyze information that informs better decisions. You see yourself as objective and impartial. You like data because they are value free. They have no agenda. Armed with these data, you search for patterns and connections. You want to understand how certain patterns affect one another. How do they combine? What is their outcome? Does this outcome fit with the theory being offered or the situation being confronted? You peel the layers back until, gradually, the root cause or causes are revealed. Others see you as logical and rigorous.
