The focus of this role is on achieving results aligned with the larger picture of Freed Marcoft and its strategic goals. Initiative, coupled with a sense of competitive drive, and the ability to stay focused on results despite changing conditions, is the key to achieving the performance objectives of this job. Because environmental and organizational conditions change rapidly, the work involves innovation and creativity in generating ideas for quick response. Decision-making is focused on implementing practical, timely solutions. The position requires getting things done quickly and handling a variety of activities. Self-assurance and the confidence to purposely drive toward results while constantly problem-solving and engaging the commitment of others is essential. A leadership style that is firm and goal-oriented, and yet motivates, trains, and engages others in an enthusiastic way is important. The emphasis on building rapport and relationships with individuals and groups requires an outgoing, poised, and persuasive communication style. Because the pace of the work is faster than average, the ability to learn quickly and thoroughly while continually recognizing and adapting to changing conditions is critical. The scope of the role requires effective delegation to proven colleagues. Especially routine and repetitive details should be delegated but with responsibility for follow-up and accountability for timely results. While the job requires the ability to act independently, a sense of urgency, and the confidence to handle a variety of challenges, a full commitment to Freed Marcroft's success and high standards of achievement are expected in this position. The emphasis is on results and effective systems that achieve results through and with people, rather than on the details of implementation. The work environment is flexible, constantly changing, and provides growth opportunities, recognition, and rewards for the achievement of results.
