I was just sitting here thinking about what I really enjoy during my work day and this is what I have come up with:
- solving problems
- solving conflict
- managing people
- researching the impossible and trying to make it possible
- being trusted
- being challenged with tasks and skills that require me to put on my thinking cap
- counseling employees on problems
- connecting people
- helping people
II know that some day I have to go back to working in the nonprofit sector. That is what that list tells me. And that I deserve the leadership positions I have held and that I can take great confidence and comfort in what I have achieved in those place.
I know I am very mission driven but I am also money driven, so those two have to align somehow.
