Whatever your unique qualities, a few key traits should apply: You’re proactive and collaborative; a leader with communication skills and the ability to build strong relationships. You’re motivated to improve and believe you can learn anything. You’re a creative problem solver with the cognitive flexibility to navigate uncertainty. And you have insight into your own patterns of thinking, until your kaleidoscope of thoughts lands on an elegant way to reframe and improve the situation at hand. In fact, breakthroughs like that are your main metric of success.
