i lead with enthusiasm and clarity. i am at my best in high-stake situations, when i enable the full potential of teams by building trust, creating ownership and setting clear boundaries. i have gathered an extensive experience in project governance, execution and community management (online and offline) across a variety of industries. i am motivated by opportunities where i can balance autonomy with full accountability. i am always looking for assignments where Leadership and Communication are critical to achieving business goals and engaging stakeholders. to me, organizations are communities to develop, not machines to fix. people appreciate my creativity in visualizing changes and translating them into actionable goals.
