Top Strengths

I do have few strengths but let me list out top 3, My top most strength is Leadership, I don’t wait for someone to tell me instead if I see there is a need and it’s of the best interest of the organization, I assume responsibility and take charge and do the necessary to close the gap. My next strength is Networking, in my 14 years of my career, I build a good professional network in a varied departments as well as organizations, this helps a lot when I face a complex issues and need some advice or opinions or a different perspective/view. My third best strength would be systems aptitude, I truly believe in making the best possible use of available systems/programs/software. Human dependent is always prone to mistakes that is why try and automate as much as possible especially a routine work/process. My basic skills in programing helps a great deal in understanding any systems functionality and able to tweak or modify to my needs.
