My name is Eric Waller and I am very glad I found this site and you people.
I work for a super-major oil and gas producer, and currently live in New Mexico, USA.
I am not a manager in the traditional sense, but I am learning. I don't necessarily want to be a manager, I want to be a great leader. There is a difference in my book.
I have been in the industry for 17 years, literally from the ground up. My first oilfield job involved a jackhammer. I currently manage a small portion of our well work activities as well as the day to day operations of one rig. Sort of like working the cash register, but all the cashiers report to you. It's an odd position to be in at times, but it is a rewarding and challenging job.
I am attending Walden University to earn my BSBA/management degree and should graduate mid Summer if all goes well.
I consider myself a lifelong student of leadership, and I know I need good management tools to be a good leader.
I hope to stay and continue to learn and to add value when I can.
Keep up the good work!
