The Construction Leading Edge Podcast

EPISODE 301: Have you ever rolled out a new process to your team only to be disappointed by how few people followed it? Perhaps, you thought about hiring new people and starting a clean slate at one point.

In this week’s episode, I will pull the veil back on some of the real reasons why your team won’t change. And you’d be surprised to know that many of these reasons have very little to do with them.

Today, I’ll break down the five real reasons why your team resists changes, some research studies to back these claims, and concrete action plans that you can apply in your construction business so you can get out of the day-to-day firefighting and make your business run without you.

Let’s jump right into it!
