Today’s spotlight: Eboni Chaffee
Title: Director of customer experience and revenue operations, Intel Corporation
Source of pride: “I am most proud of having established a cross-matrix, global team comprised of diverse and inclusive perspectives who ensure that Intel’s Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) customers enjoy immense success and an unparalleled user experience.”
The personality trait that helped you succeed: “I tend to think that having a positive mindset is a strength that has served me well in my journey. Having a positive perspective as I engage key stakeholders and customers fosters healthy collaboration. This has enabled a robust approach to how I work with teams and data to drive brand loyalty and customer success.”
The personality trait that got you into trouble: “I have always been outspoken, even as a child, causing my parents and teachers angst at times. Over the years, this has been one of my most important development areas: how do I triangulate my will, convictions, and need to stand up for the things that matter most to me, while also being “mindful” of others? I learned to not only be aware of my parents’ and teachers’ feelings but to also give them space to see things differently than I do. I continue to focus on developing my ability to acknowledge that there are 10,000 ways to communicate an idea and I need to challenge myself to leverage the most robust, mindful, and results-oriented options.”
Best childhood memory: “Despite humble beginnings, I have been on an accelerated path to excellence. As a child, I was heavily influenced by my grandmother, Rosa Lee Westbrooke, a teacher and a pastor who started my academic training at the age of two. I was seven-years-old when I entered the public school system and it did not take long before my teachers recognized that I was gifted. I was promoted two grade levels and graduated high school at the age of 15. I have been raised to have high expectations of myself; however, I have also learned that an adult’s journey is much more complex. With that said, I believe my childhood memory of requiring and expecting perfection has been replaced with a value of the continuous journey we are all on to be the best versions of ourselves.”
