I went into 2015 having set myself some goals, as I think all of us did.
To accomplish these goals meant that I had to re-arrange how much time I spend where and how I get things done, so the natural course of action was to split some CTP Team responsibilities amongst team members. The intention was to free up more time to work on things that take more advantage of my skill sets.
The division of tasks works great, any team leader that has not yet done so should look into it. Thank you Terry, Sabrina, Patricia and Martin for helping me out with everything that needs to be done day to day.
While on the highway of life there are some things that are very certain. You will have crossroads, road blocks, potholes and many other situations that will determine how you get to your destination or if your destination will change. When these obstacles are presented sometimes you must give up 1 thing to choose the right path.
As many all ready know, I do run a full time business offline and I do have ambitious goals to achieve. So today I came to my crossroad, choosing one way will enable me to achieve many of my goals, personal and team oriented, choosing the other way I may still get there but I would give up a lot along the way and I would become an absent leader.
It would be unfair of me to choose the way I want to, and try to hold on to some things that I need to let go. So it is with some sadness that I announce the stepping down as leader of the SAA but it is with excitement that I announce Terry Allison as my replacement,
Since day 1 Terry has shown an intense commitment to our team, he is always there for team members and available more often than I am. Terry shares the vision for our team and I hope you give him the support he deserves.
I will still be around, mainly focused on the business side of projects to come, but also for any support that may be needed.
Thank you all for the wonderful time I have had as your leader, you have all supported me more than I could have imagined and I am thankful for all the great friends I have made through this.
