It’s in your nature to love people and nurture relationships.
You always listen carefully. But you also always have a POV. You understand the ins and outs of your client’s business because you’re a detective and know every situation is unique. You’re curious. You’re a friend. You know what makes clients look good, so we can look good.
You’re also leader, not just manager. You’re second best at everyone else’s job. You’re impassioned. A detail maestro. A big picture seeker. A collaborator, financier, map maker. A diplomat. A participator. You grok the typical, ensuring the basics are done and done well, but you also seek opportunities for growth. You get your hands dirty, with a smile on your face.
But you’re not a yes-woman (or yes-man). You head off challenges before they become problems. You understand your client’s pain points and the agency mission to be unforgettable and are relentless about making both sides meet. You don’t mind being an unsung hero, because any client success is everyone’s success.
