Profile of a Workforce Development Specialist

You are energized by finding solutions and moving people through training and leadership.  You are an exceptional listener and strategic with your focus on serving clients with excellence.  You recognize, respect and appreciate the benefits (and challenges!) of working in a small business. You are energized by a fast-paced environment, can prioritize and organize work activities, and can pivot effectively from task to task while keeping all “balls in the air.” You thrive on being involved in complex tasks and projects and are adept in working with a range of temperaments in different settings – from construction sites, to board rooms, to political arenas. You can come in and out of the minutiae all the while forging ahead on milestones.

You are naturally curious and a master at asking probing questions. People appreciate you for your resourcefulness and ability to think things through.

As a learner, you’re vulnerable and willing to ask questions, offer and receive feedback. You are humble and careful about what you project.

And finally, you are ready to be a contributing member of a dynamic, high-performing team with high visibility that will find ways to capitalize on your unique skills and help drive your professional interests!
