I've been given plenty of titles: Outspoken Leader, Question Asker, Great Reframer, Operations Wizard, Marriage Counselor for Business Partners, and Junkyard Dog. Ask me about them! Let's see what I can do for you and your business.
With a background in small business Operations, Education, and Consulting, I'm adding Sales & Account Management to my skill set through SIB. I'm looking for an Operations or Project Management role in a Boston startup.
Passions: salsa dancing, travel, HBR, green smoothies, and unleashing the superpowers of my classmates.
What skills do you bring to a project team?
Project Management, Operations, Consulting, Question-Asking, Curriculum Development, Lesson Planning, Copy Writing, Copy Editing, Troubleshooting.
Also: leading SIB students in the event of an alien invasion.
Why are you called the Question Asker and Great Reframer?
-I'm dominated by my curiosity and ask tons of questions
-Those tons of questions lead to the right questions
-The right questions can completely reframe how you approach problems
Why are you called Junkyard Dog?
That's my favorite title. When I was a kid my mentor and friend saw me interacting with a particularly nasty customer. He said "Lilian, you're like a junkyard dog: you won't be intimidated and you won't back down."
What are your biggest weaknesses/strengths?
I'm not a visionary and I'm not an inventor. I'm the person who can help you flesh out your vision and help you get there.
