Tenacious Tina

FDFF0B9C-EFA9-4A47-8562-EA961BB67E41Her name was Tina and she was tenacious, which is how she earned the nickname “Tenacious Tina.” She was a project manager in charge of a small team of analysts and was the always the first to jump in when new challenges were thrown their way.

She would schedule a team meeting, usually in the small conference room that doubled as the company library. Tina would introduce the latest project to her team and discuss whether or not it would be a good match for their skillsets.

Tina was very forthright in expressing her opinion, but, at the same time, she gave everyone the opportunity to contribute their own thoughts. The one thing that got under her skin, though, was a lack of seriousness; she didn’t truck foolishness from her team.

After about an hour of discussion, she would end the meeting and instruct her team members to noodle on the pros and cons of the potential project overnight.

They would reconvene the next day and Tina would, with input from the team members, ultimately make the go/no go decision. Of course, once she made the decision to pursue a project, Tina would live up to her nickname and she and her team would work tenaciously to successfully bring the project home.
