Moving Forward in Fremont and Union City

This week in Fremont, we started the week off slowly and carefully with an entirely redesigned system to help us work more efficiently. The ES teams swapped partners and adjusted to the new efficient system as effectively as possible. Professional development Fridays are going extremely well with all the ESs. So far, I’ve taught them about effective communication and self-development, as well as branding oneself in order to determine your target audience. I’ve asked each ES what they are interested in learning about on Fridays, and the best answer I heard was more information about our non-profit organization, Rising Sun Energy Center as a whole. Furthermore, I think this site is moving forward each and every day, taking in all sorts of new information as well as new professional skills. For example, the other day we gave a Green House Call to a Fremont Council Member’s home, so the ESs worked even harder to deliver their message as clearly and as effectively as possible.

This week in Union City, we performed more than 100 Green House Calls and we are well on our way to reaching 150 houses served per week! Although it was our roughest week yet, we still managed to pull together and overcome the obstacles we faced. Since our outreach manager left early one day, and we had some absent ESs throughout the week, our site persevered until our teammates returned. We are at the halfway point and after finishing this week strong, I think we can continue to face any challenges that face us.
