What is a task that I can do?
It’s an interesting question to ask someone at my stage in my career.
The flat answer that misses the point is that I can do lots of tasks.
What task then best represents the context or venue for which all that I bring to the professional table is best displayed.
One long-time associate responds immediately that I manage people.
I prefer to describe myself in terms of the roles I play well.
Systems thinker, team leader, problem solver, (problem creator?), idea implementor.
But most people describe jobs in terms of the tasks involved.
If I want people to understand what I do, then I’d be better served to phrase it in the terms with which they are most familiar.
I lead people to make things happen.
