Message From The President Of FPL
Throughout my life, I have been inspired by great leaders who are driven to create excellence in everything they do, challenging the conventional to create change for the better. It’s what leaders do.
Steve Jobs was determined to get a computer in the hands of everyday people; he set out to change how we use and have access to technology. Because of his vision and determination, our lives are forever changed; smart phones, tablets and laptop computers provide us with instant access to nearly everything. It is changing not only the way we do business, but the way we all live.
We can’t all make that kind of impact in the world, but it’s that kind of leadership and innovation that drives us at Florida Power & Light Company – the determination and commitment to go above and beyond what is expected and required to improve our customers’ lives. It’s not just about doing what’s convenient, but doing what’s right and finding better ways to make the electricity we produce more affordable, more reliable and cleaner.
And it’s about investing in you – our next generation – to help positively shape the future of our communities and make them even better places to live and work. That’s why we’re honored to partner with the Student ACES program to bring you the building blocks of success outlined in this book.
In the office or on the field, take every opportunity to rise above the conventional, develop a passion for excellence and a drive for success. I hope this book inspires you to challenge yourself to create positive change and make great things happen.
