Work was always exciting for me as an operational manager, every day presents a new challenge and required application of mind and heart. I have learned most of my skills at Eskom a place where you can truly test your theory you know so well. I had great, wise, compassionate managers, with experience, they grew me up, they were there for me when i was down. As a manager myself, i believe in servant leadership, leading by example and living the company values. The work place is mostly relaxed as i plan all my daily work. Safety is paramount, so you know you going home alive!!. Achieving targets are tough though due to constraints but i made sure i managed it properly and i have achieved. The work place is friendly and less competitive. The biggest delight is watching a customers expression of excitement when they receive electricity for the first time or a compliment from our customer. The other is to receive that award from the CEO for Customer excellence, i got that.
I truly love Eskom, it values and all it does that goes unseen.
