Effectively Leveraging Trainers, Coaches, and Mentors
Contracting is a high-risk sport and the training of yourself, your managers and your craft labor should be as rigorous as a professional sports team. We are facing a massive shortage of critical talent yet most spend very little on talent development.
Allocation of Management Resources
Most new initiatives that contractors try often fall short of expectations due to poor management time allocation during start-up. We work with a lot of contractors and rarely see truly bad ideas or teams that truly can’t execute.
Evaluating Levels of Importance and Desire
Your feelings about what is "Really Important" or "Urgent" are often lying to you, or at the very least, stretching the truth. Your calendar tells you the truth, even though you may not like what it says.
