Today’s question for the @winniekao #yourturnchallenge is to talk about something you are good at.

This is a challenge. I don’t like blogging about what I am good at.  I like blogging about what I learned, and how I might have improved, but not what I am good at.

I think some of the things I have been good at in my life, such as mathematics and foreign language, I do not really use in my career any more.

I do like working with people, though, and I enjoy coaching students and faculty through challenging situations.  I enjoy solving other people’s problems, seeing them go forward in a positive way, and appreciating my input.  Very satisfying.

So, for now, that is what I want to say I am good at.
