Kudos and Kind Words

"I could say many things about how great of a job you did on [our project], but ultimately it comes down to this:

You were not only a rock star, but you made all of us rock stars too."

- Senior UX Designer

2018 Annual Evaluation: Highlights

Regarding my primary project work:

"Sarah has proven to master what many cannot: the difficult balance of being an expert “doer” of the work, building consensus with internal teams/clients, WHILE thinking 10 steps ahead about how to build sustainable methods so the work she’s doing lives on well beyond her contributions to the project. This is evident in the year plus she spent ... leading groundbreaking work on one of Globant's biggest contracts."

"Sarah has demonstrated incredible comfort with the ambiguity that comes with defining her role in a large-scale account, where the ecosystem is complex and the plane is literally “being built as we fly it.” In countless peer assessments, the most called upon traits Sarah demonstrates are:

1) The ability to see the big picture among the details

2) Her ability to calmly and eloquently handle difficult conversations with clients

3) How she thrives in a “leader-leader” setting, where no matter your role, you must earn client trust as a peer, and as a fellow leader."

"Without Sarah’s technical skills in qualitative research and the product management lifecycle—and her ability to bring this to the highly complex [industrial automation] vertical—Globant would not have been well positioned to take on the larger [multi-year engagement]. Much of the work we’re doing in 2019 can be mapped directly back to Sarah’s work."

On my general contributions:

"Sarah is constantly chasing down knowledge and finding ways to share that with her peers and the wider Globant team. She’s always pushing us to be better, sell better, deliver better, and to be more strategic and thoughtful in how we work."

"Sarah has a quiet, calming presence.... [she] is the archetype of how the world is coming to define true leadership. Sarah has the intellectual rigor, the emotional intelligence, and is an expert in the doing and in finding the forest beyond the trees. Most importantly, she brings people up with her...always finding ways to integrate multiple perspectives and points-of-view, without ego and without pretense."

"[Sarah] has the potential to be a central leader in the US as we continue expanding our strategic capabilities."

“Kudos to you for handling some of the most crucial conversations in [the project]. I really appreciated how you always brought the customer back to the center of the process.”
