I am thankful for all the sharing of knowledge on this group and across utilities. I was able to make a career shift from Aerospace to Power and it is due to sharing that happens like here in this community. I didn't know if I would be able to do this. Now I am about to take my PE exam. I am sure with all I have learned in the last five years that I will be successful. I will do my best to participate and share here in the future as well. Happy Thanksgiving!
Utility Professionals and Energy Leaders: What are you thankful for this year?
- Nov 13, 2020 4:56 pm GMT
To put it simply, 2020 has been a challenging year for all of us-- professionally, personally, and as an industry. With next week marking Thanksgiving, I thought it only appropriate to take a second to pause and, as a community, take stock in what it is for which we have to be thankful.
Despite the anxiety from the COVID-19 pandemic, the economic uncertainty that's resulted, and challenges from wildfires to hurricanes and more, I'm sure there's still plenty that you have to reflect upon that you're grateful for during this season when it's traditionally to count your blessings:
- Do you have particularly hardworking and dedicated employees and coworkers who have made successes this year possible despite all the hurdles?
- Have you had leaders in your organization that inspired and showed compassion to your situation as your world went remote and virtual?
- Do you want to give a shoutout to the culture of the utility industry as a whole for keeping the ship steady amid a rapidly changing industry landscape?
- Are you thankful for programs, technologies, and offerings that are becoming available that help you to deliver better service to your customers?
