“Man of few words.” That’s how people, including ASDS Elena and myself describe him. But Sir Peter was not able to live up to his billing this afternoon. His message was longer than expected and he knew it too. There is only one reason that can be gleaned from it. He felt your sincere and warm welcome that’s why he was relaxed in the presence of the supervisors and school heads of SLDO. This early, he feels at home with you. This is a very good indication that he will have a harmonious working relationship with everyone of you. I was the happiest when I learned that he will be assigned in Southern Leyte because , if we have a common denominator, we both treasure relationships and the welfare of all employees under our care. We had some chit chat in between the program, and I was happy to know that he will continue to implement all the PAPs that we started. He might have some changes in the way things are being done, and of course that’s understandable. Changing things where he thinks necessary falls under his management style and preference, discretion, and wisdom.
As a fellow Southern Leyteno, may I appeal for your support in every undertaking that he will implement. Thank you and see you around, I am just two blocks away.
