Leaders must be able to admit when they are wrong, and most importantly, what they are going to do to rectify their errors. This display of humility is critical to the success of a country’s energy sector.
This perspective was recently shared by an all-female panel to hundreds in attendance at Trinidad and Tobago’s Energy Conference and Trade Show. The event was held at the Hyatt Hotel and organized by the country’s Energy Chamber.
The panel featured Regional President of BP, Trinidad and Tobago, Claire Fitzpatrick; EY’s Country Managing Partner, Pria Narinesingh; TT’s Permanent Secretary of the Energy Ministry, Penelope Bradshaw-Niles; Renewable Energy Consultant, Siana Teelucksingh; and BHP(Petroleum)’s Vice President of Technology, Kristen Ray.
The topic of discussion was Leading the Transformation with technology. It was facilitated by BHP Trinidad and Tobago’s Corporate Affairs Manager, Dr. Carla Noel-Mendez.
During the question and answer segment, a member of the audience asked the panel about the key factor that must be present in leadership for technology driven transformation in the energy sector.
President of BP, Trinidad and Tobago, Claire Fitzpatrick, was quick to say, “A little bit of humility…” Thinking along the same line was and BHP (Petroleum)’s Vice President of Technology, Kristen Ray.
She said, “And I think it is the humility to say we were wrong and be able to shift the direction of strategy, and not feel the need to carry it on and look bold. (There is a need) to be comfortable with saying we were wrong , this how is how we know why and here is what we are going to do about it going forward…”
