Title at PeopleKeys: Controller

What I do at PeopleKeys:  I’m responsible for the finance and accounting operations of the company as well as HR.

How does my personality fit with my position:  Financial management and planning require attention to detail and ensuring that all information presented to a decision maker is as accurate as possible.  I research and plan out how to handle new policy/procedure creation or changing existing ones to ensure that they are correct and logical.  Two things I enjoy the most are creating flowcharts that detail how a process will work and outlining information for policies, both total C traits.  I’m also a lieutenant for a local fire department and when responding to calls I make up plans and run through scenarios for how we will handle the situation, albeit at it much quicker pace.  This all occurs in the truck on the way to the call and by the time we arrive on scene, I’ve given my team-members different job tasks so that we operate as a cohesive unit to get the job done.

What personality style do I admire:  I admire the D personality by far.  While I think I have a few D personality traits such as working well under pressure and being able to function with a heavy workload, I’d really love to be able to make decisions based on my gut feeling and stand behind it confidently.  Being that I’m very C heavy, I feel the need to analyze and assess my gut-feeling prior to going with it and this can take too long when an answer is needed immediately.  I’d also love to be able to speak out about issues more frequently instead of not saying anything at all which is very common with the S trait.
