  4. Godfrey says:

    I’m always optimistic about every challenge that I face, and I believe there is always a way out in every challenge especially when things are properly dealt with. I like environment in which every individual is free to bubble up his/her own ideas. I don’t take an easy way out.

    I like being tested e.g.; being given a task that has to be done in a short period of time, and I also believe in team work. Being in the environment that is too challenging is where my pledger is. I don’t spend most of my time being far from reality, for it is a caution in my daily decision making. I keep personal things at home, and when I’m at work I do what I’ve been hired for.

    From my previous job I’ve learned that when you deal with customers you have to keep things simple and clear. As I have worked customer care service agent every change has to be well communicated with the customers. I am approachable and smile is always in my face. I engage much in personal-development that is equivalent to my daily work, so I make sure to take relevant annual courses in order to improve my skills, for I like been an asset to the company.

Being nominated to be a member of that team was a portrayal of trust from senior management, which was an exceptional achievement to me in my career. It was important for the Unit to achieve the specified deadline of recovering that debt which, was targeted to be done within six months. Within the specified time we managed to collect almost 90% of debts before the dead line date.
