Three unique traits I offer:
I have demonstrated the ability to rapidly develop a deep understanding of new domains, technologies, horizontals, and verticals
I'm not averse to rolling up my sleeves and getting dirty, I don't get lost in the weeds, and I never expect anything from my team that I wouldn't do myself
I never stop asking what the targeted business outcomes are, what are the customer needs and are we doing the right things to connect the two
