    You’re deeply ethical; you care about your own reputation, your employer’s, and your clients’. You know that you’re more productive as part of a high-performing team than as a lone wolf. You have successfully managed confidential and sensitive information. You have a bias for action, and believe in fighting hard – and fair – to achieve the long-term win.
