Attorney Duties: Significant interaction with attorneys, engineers, government relations advocates and other staff at NAB, radio and television members and personnel at the Federal Communications Commission and other government agencies. Drafting memorandum, comments in regulatory proceedings and briefs. Research, review and analysis of traditional legal resources including statutes, regulations and caselaw, as well as nontraditional materials such as industry-specific publications, economic papers and engineering data. Preparing and reviewing advocacy materials. Analyzing legislation. Planning and participating in industry events and programs. Addressing NAB member inquiries about legal issues. Deals with others in a professional manner. Recognizes and shows respect for the strengths and contributions of others. This is in clear contrast to behaviors that leave people feeling that their thoughts, opinions, values and needs are of little interest or are somehow inappropriate and unacceptable; a tendency to habitually say, write or do things that are disrespectful to individuals who are not present or who are otherwise unaware what has been communicated; and/or a strong tendency to notice and recognize missed expectations and failures. Adjusts quickly and effectively to changing conditions and demands. Discusses change as a necessary and inevitable aspect of organizational life as well as an opportunity to learn new things. Has a similar view and approach to potentially stressful situations or with conflicting demands. Invests personal energy toward accepting and adapting to change that others use toward resisting or resenting it. This is in contrast to those who tend to react to negatively about change and whose productivity and relationships with others suffer as a result. Those who fail to demonstrate flexibility tend to continue in a direction that is no longer relevant or productive, express regrets when things are not as they used to be and show distinct sgns of stress while others are already swimming in the direction of the tide. Communicates effectively and appropriately. Uses good judgment as to what to communicate to whom and to when as well as the best way to get that accomplished (written, verbal). Speaks in a clear and credible manner, selecting the right tone for the situation and audience. Provides appropriate feedback when needed. Listens to others and allows them to make their point. This is quite different than those who tend to select the wrong means of communicating, or who communicate information to inappropriate people. It also contrasts with those whose messages are not clear or lack credibility, as well as those who demonstrate poor listening skills and are unreceptive to feedback. Handles multiple assignments and priorities yet still fulfills all commitments. Readily accepts new responsibilities and adapts well to changes in procedures. Gives appropriate priorities to various work demands.

Follows through on commitments. Values the time of others by: coming prepared to meetings, being on time, responding to emails and communications in a timely manner. This is quite different from those who struggle to stay focused when faced with multiple priorities; focus only on one or two job priorities while neglecting others; and/or hesitate, complain or refuse to accept new procedures or assignments. Takes a proactive approach to anticipating and preventing problems. Uses logic and methods to solve difficult problems resulting in effective solutions.
