I enjoy solving problems, lead teams, ensuring customer satisfaction, creating statistics, and using the oxford comma. I hate being idle, and one of the worst things I've experienced work-wise is having nothing to do. Not that I don't take own initiatives, but one can only do so much before clearance is needed from a higher level or another player's assignments needs to be finished, before I can do some more on a project. No man is an island, as John Donne wrote in Devotions upon Emergent Occasions. While on the subject: I enjoy working on my own, but since we're all different and have different mindsets, the advantage of working in teams is huge. (Mostly) thanks to my time at Hyper Island, I'm able to do so with great ease and being comfortable in teams, and I love taking a lead role. Both for coordination of tasks but also as a leader and guiding light.
On a more stricly business-oriented level, I'm very interested in E-commerce, and has been working in connection to it most of my career. I prefer to look at the greater scheme, rather than arguing over pixel perfection sketches (but I won't deny that details matter, especially when it comes to getting customers to click that button), and improve the entire customer experience wether it's returns, shipping or the website.
I often get the question about what kind of manager I would prefer. I would prefer a manager that gives me concise directions with frequent and constructive feedback, rather than given total freedom ("Here's your desk. Do your thing"). Someone who sees what I'm doing, and validates my work. Who can suggest new areas that need my attention. Since I enjoy being a leader, an obvious question is "what kind of leader would you prefer to be?". I strive to not simply manage teams, because that's not how you get the added benefit of a team. Instead, I strive to be a leader who can guide the team towards working better together, taking a collective ownership, and feeling good.
Since I'm a quick learner, I often tend to learn what's needed for a specific task. For instance, when I started building this website, I had to learn how WP worked. Which isn't that hard, but still - you get my point.
