  • Working with Others: Your work style is very well suited to working in teams, in highly interactive groups and in one-on-one relationships. You find it easy to cooperate and share accountability with others and enjoy working in the company of others. Where there are significant differences between group members, you are capable of adapting where necessary to avoid conflict. You like to take on ownership of the work and are very confident about the ability to get work done well without relying on others for direction or support.
  • Getting Things Done: You have an intense drive to achieve results and be successful. This is fueled by a willingness to be assertive and by a high activity level. Beyond that, you are willing to take risks in order to get large rewards and you have the self confidence to persist in spite of obstacles. You enjoy a challenging problem or objective and certainly have the determination to find successful solutions. Your steady success stems in part from an appreciation for the benefits of planning and organizing. You are conscientious about getting the details right in these plans and will ask for help from others, if necessary. You show every indication of being is a smart worker who is a quick study when problems arise. This ability to recognize when problems occur and quickly determine solutions enables you to keep work going forward with little or no interruption in spite of obstacles. In part, this is because you are confident in your own abilities.
  • Leading and Influencing: Your work style is to take on leadership roles in a wide variety of situations. This style comes from a deep self-confidence and a strong desire to achieve success. Equally important, you have a strong self-awareness and openness to feedback from others and other learning opportunities. This combination of confidence, drive, and openness enables you to be a highly effective leader.
  • Risk Tolerance: You enjoy excitement and stimulation in your life and will make an effort to create a stimulating work place. Similarly, you are more willing than most to take risks at work that could produce very positive results but have some chance of failure. While you are not reckless, you do seek out risky situations as a way of improving your work outcomes beyond what others might do. This attitude is valuable for entrepreneurial work and work where you have a large range of responsibility for generating business growth. 
  • Follow-Through: As someone who tends to be driven by exceeding expectations, you are likely to be seen as a high achiever. As a result, you are likely to have excellent follow-through on tasks when appropriately engaged.

“I’ve worked alongside Terry a great deal over past 12 years, first as a one of his clients, then as a colleague, business partner and friend — he is not only a dedicated, business-focused, tech-savvy senior executive, he’s one of the smartest and most driven business professionals I’ve ever met. Terry’s passion for and deep understanding of both client needs AND leading-edge technologies has helped him devise powerful digital solutions, develop new lines of business and deliver countless marketing programs that drive business growth and keep customers coming back for more. I’ve seen him in action many times, as an astute, adept motivator who can easily identifying client ‘pain points’, work hand-in-hand to come up with elegant, creative solutions and organize business, technical and creative teams to get the job done — he kept me on my toes and very busy for many years as he seems to uncover new business opportunities wherever he goes. Above all, Terry is an honest, hardworking, efficient and analytical professional — a great find whose efforts would bring value to the executive suite of any company.”

He would be a valuable addition to any organization, especially those engaged in product development where the software performance is critical.
