Enterprising?
Enterprising 
Enterprising people like situations that involve using resources for personal or corporate economic gain. Such people may have an opportunistic frame of mind, and like commerce, trade and making deals. Some are drawn to sales and marketing occupations. Many will eventually end up owning their own business, or managing a section in larger organisations. They tend to be very goal-oriented, and work best when focused on a target. Some have an entrepreneurial inclination.

I think a very important quality is flexibility/openness. This includes openness to new ways of doing things, openness to learning from others/feedback and a willingness to listen to people. If you don't have this quality, it is impossible to learn and develop as a psychologist. It is also important that you are committed to delivering work of a high standard. When there are a number of tight deadlines, you really need to maintain your focus on getting things right.
