● Working comfortably in ambiguous or less well defined circumstances to develop clear analysis.

● Working closely with key stakeholders to identify, document, and communicate issues related to security assurance activities.

● Building and leveraging relationships to positively influence teammates by mentoring and motivating others on your teams.

● Working with program sponsors and key stakeholders on presentations to executives.

● Communicating work status and changes to management with appropriate frequency and detail.
