Success in EP as a Grey Professional | Jared van Driessche

Do you have a real challenge being a 'Grey Professional' or actually becoming a 'Social Chameleon'?

We are delighted to welcome Jared van Driessche, Director of Security and EP Professional to the podcast to help us ask:

  • Are we encouraged to be a 'grey person' because it is very difficult to teach new operators social and emotional intelligence?
  • Are we too focused on preventing operational intelligence leaking in place of remaining 'grey' around the Principal?
  • Is there a way to promote your service without promoting yourself today?
  • Should we expect to be fired from some EP jobs whilst learning to become an effective social chameleon?
  • Is being a grey professional ultimately a cornerstone of the 'service mindset'?
