Vincent J. Romans - Personal Profile
The following is a personal portrait that is based on a professional career of over 40 years. It includes manager/peer reviews, organizational and psychological testing results, personal introspection, self-evaluation, and input from friends and family.
I am self-confident with self-power awareness. I am more often the exception to the rule than the one who blends in with the general population. This is partially the result of being a change agent, catalyst, and facilitator of new concepts and ideas within a company. I look to the possibilities of the future rather than to the accomplishments of the past. I am comfortable playing on the edge as well as within the circle. I use my introspective reality to proactively focus on possibilities while using external forces to help guide and adjust a company's direction, events, and objectives rather than wait and react to some immediate direction or external pressure.
I prefer to be a participant rather than a spectator or a sideline observer. I have experience as both a team player and as an independent agent functioning within all levels of field and staff management. I am comfortable moving back and forth between both of these working environments.
I bring strong leadership, general management, interpersonal, communication, strategic planning, and analytical and problem solving skills to an organization. I am accustomed to multi-faceted and complex business situations that require flexibility and a keen sense of "the situation.”
I am a pragmatist and decisions come naturally to me. I am a builder of ideas, concepts, and systems. I use thinking in the form of empirical logic, leveraging the power of events and people so that they can be integrated through some positive experience base that can be put to constructive outcomes and solutions.
A natural brainstormer, I am open to new concepts and ideas and always seek them out. Risk-taking comes easily to me, and I enjoy pursuing calculated strategies and tactics that have high payoffs through strategic plans that can be adjusted to meet the needs of changing goals, objectives, risks, opportunities, and environmental conditions.
My deductive logic and intellect is coupled with and supported by highly-developed intuitive reasoning and gestalt-based decision making. I have a keen sense for the consequences of business applications, new ideas, and strategic decisions.
My drive is to completion, always with an eye to long-term consequences and optimal financial results. Ideas seem to carry their own force with me, and I subject every idea to the test of usefulness. I see challenges as stimulating events rather than roadblocks that stall progress.
I enjoy being part of a situation where ideas, concepts, and theory are translated into real, achievable actions and results. Planning and organizing come naturally to me and are supported by a strong implementation dimension that assures that whatever I plan does not gather dust on the shelf.
I enjoy the creation, design, development, uncertainty, risks, and opportunities associated with strategy and the tactical involvement that comes with successful execution and implementation. This ensures that plans, decisions, processes, and systems translate into objective results, especially those that optimize human potential as well as revenue and profit results.
Business growth, employee performance and satisfaction, cost effectiveness, goals and objectives achievement, profit orientation, and team success are strong imperatives for me. I am a dedicated and loyal person with high integrity who is interested in growing people and moving industries, markets, institutions, businesses, organizations, concepts, products, and services forward.
I am a patient negotiator who realizes that time marches on, and I manage toward the light at the end of the tunnel. I always seek to integrate others’ valued input to help ensure organizational buy-in and success managing toward "everyone wins" results. I move forward with any initiative, process, or decision that not only includes others’ contribution and feedback, but also includes my own intuition and judgment which has evolved from my seasoned experience and understanding of people, places, and events.
