Additionally, my skills in the areas of operational turnarounds and initiation of process improvement have helped me fine-tune the tools that will assist an organization such as yours.
I am a high achiever who generates enthusiasm through personal leadership, yet am willing and able to effectively delegate authority. My achievements in the areas of productivity improvements and team development would be excellent topics to be discussed in a personal interview.
