“One’s only rival is one’s own potentialities. One’s only failure is failing to live up to one’s own possibilities. In this sense, every man can be a king, and must therefore treated like a king.”
– Abraham Maslow.
Sarah is a king in herself and an alpha - a woman who knows what she wants and values herself as an individual. Dr. Virgel C. Binghay, former Chairperson of Thought Leadership/Research once wrote about Sarah - her project management pertaining to several studies such as Alternative Work Arrangement, Contractualization, Salary and Benefits Survey and project with ILO-DOLE has given PMAP added advantage in terms of generating additional body of knowledge. Her skills in tapping/networking with experts, charting project roles and milestones relevant to the initiated projects also contributed to PMAP’s financial status. With the number of projects being undertaken, she was able to manage diverse viewpoints and wide array of stakeholders through effective communication and negotiation. She tailors her communication style to the needs of the stakeholders and ensures important matters are shared with all appropriate individuals. She has the flexibility in managing demands of customers and stakeholders. She is able to recognize trends in adverse customer reactions and recommends alternatives. She consults with stakeholders to identify common issues, problems or gaps in service.
Sarah is former Youth Counselor of Carnival Cruise in Miami, Florida, U.S.A., Information, Education and Communications Officer of the ABS-CBN Foundation Incorporated, Administrative Assistant of the Bantay Bata 163, and a Field Interviewer/Research Associate of Rural Integrated Cooperative Enterprise Development.
