Learning towards success

In the mornings at 7h00, we held a production meeting and at 8h00 there is a operational meeting. where we discuss the production and operational hiccups. I am having a good relationships with co-workers because we always discuss every matter that arises and solve it. I have learned that if there is a problem investigate it and get all the facts before pointing any fingers. I enjoy investigating and solving problems.

Pros: to have good communication
Cons: working underpressure

Good opportunities

Time management is important as we work closely with customers. I set example to my sub-ordinates by becoming reliable, available, and always on time. Relationship between myself and co-workers is good as they report any challenges, innovations, and progress in time and so do I to them and senior management. I have learnt a lot in terms of communication, leadership, logistics, reporting skills to mention few but not limited. Most challenging is to report to customers not reasons of not reaching the target as requested.

Pros: Oppotunities of promotion are available.
Cons: Working longer hours and on weekend

Good learning environment

I start work 15minutes before to analyze the work for the day and plan. I communicate with co-workers about the expectation from senior management and customers. I have a good relationship with co-workers and as well they have good relation with me. I have learnt a lot in terms of communication, leadership, reporting and presentation skills to mention a few. My challenging moments is when we have challenges in reaching the expected target and need to report to customers and senior management. The good moments is when we are ahead of target allocated to us by both management and satisfying the customers.

Pros: Oppotunities of promotion are available.
Cons: Longer working hours and working under pressure.
