And I was here to change that.
Wow. When I was told that I’d have my toil split out for me with this regional office, they weren’t kidding. But the opening to lead a regional office was too exciting for me to say anything but yes. I had been laboring inside the zone controlled heating as well as air conditioning of the corporate headquarters for a few years at that point. While I was thrilled to have made it to corporate, I was also ready for a serious leadership role. Well, I got one plus it’s a handful. But thanks to a fantastic local heating as well as air conditioning supplier, I have at least solved the huge commercial heating as well as air conditioning troubles that have plagued this building for far too long. Basically, I walked into a powder keg when it came to morale. Not only was morale low, there was a serious hostility vibe as well. I don’t really feel I’ve ever been in a toil environment that was that negative. But each journey begins with a single step. So I spent my particularly first week doing nothing else really but listening plus party information plus perspectives. It was clear that this bunch of friends felt completely adrift plus alone in the supplier. I also tried to explain that this wasn’t their fault but the fault of a series of ineffective management. And I was here to change that. Another first on that list of priorities was simple comfort in the workplace. There was literally one control component for a one story building holding more than a hundred friends. The second week I was here, I sent everyone to their houses for a four afternoon weekend while the commercial heating as well as air conditioning was replaced! Everyone returned to zone controlled heating as well as air conditioning with multiple separate control units plus independent heating plus cooling zones.
