High leadership capability
Find it difficult to turn work off
I look forward to a job opportunity that will allow me to work in collaboration with other professionals. My leadership capability allows me to influence my juniors and help them pursue the vision held by the organization or a work team. Although I find it challenging to balance work and life and turn off tasks, these weaknesses help me finish all tasks in time. My being self-analytical reduces my efficiency at times, but it helps me discover and correct errors in time.
