He has an amazing ability to separate the important from the. unimportant and to summarize a given situation into workable terms. He is forceful in following through on any required actions and is not diverted from attaining the desired results. His attitude ` is always a positive one, and he has the ability to communicate clearly and concisely, by any media, both to his subordinates and supervisors. This attribute has been most helpful with the controversial and sticky issues with which we. have learned to live.
