- As you wear two hats of vying for new growth and servicing existing partner schools you would need to balance both roles
- You feel the pulse. As a growth person, there is no set formula for success.
- You are willing to listen and adapt your pitch to what is needed at that moment instead of coming with a preconceived notion.

- Data-driven attitude. Trust but verify. You are comfortable looking at numbers to analyze whether the program is working effectively instead of going by your hunch

- You will innovate to achieve your targets
