Welcome to another episode of the Construction Leading Edge podcast. My name is Todd Dawalt, and today is going to be a little different. I’m going to start with a story.
It was August 2014, and I had spent two or three hours preparing for this meeting. I was nervous because this meeting would determine the future of my job.
When it was time, I drove a few miles to the Applebees where we agreed to meet, and I had a knot in my stomach. This was going to be one of the most difficult, and important conversations of my life.
You see, I was meeting with the owner of the company I worked for to confront him about some things, and frankly I didn’t know if I would have a job when it was over.
