The old management were more of the 'do as I tell you' style guys. With the JCI's development approach, it introduced & encouraged personal responsibility, development & safety.
This was introduced in toolbox talks & life skills coaching to ensure full participation.

This also forced a change in workplace culture with a new approach of planning your work & applying safety principles.

The hardest part of the job was having to change mind sets who were resistant to change. This presented its own challenges.

The most enjoyable was seeing the completion of a planned & executed job, when the client is satisfied that we've made a difference especially to improve their production.

Entrepreneurs value employees who are constantly striving to make themselves better—having a more skilled team leads to a better company. I love when my employees say, ‘I want to learn more about this,’ or ‘I really think I could help the company by moving into this area.’ It’s up to each employee to figure out how he or she can be best utilized in a growing company.

A large corporation that has a lot to offer. Every day has new opportunities to learn and develop in technology and personally.
In order to be the best, I challenged myself to put meaningful content into a technical training course and making the learning environment enjoyable and memorable.

Not only was I involved with technical training, but also presenting to end users on solutions and to assist in closing deals.

My job description also involved solution sales training and advanced services such as end user technical training and system commissioning.
