Team Or Talent; Where Should You Invest For Growth?
Best of Contractor Evolution • 58m
"Talent wins games, but teamwork and intelligence win championships."
Toby Woodiwiss, painting contractor extraordinaire, is a firm believer in this philosophy; and the results, well, they speak for themselves.
His business runs like a well-oiled machine thanks to a carefully selected team and investment in the ‘right’ people.
It wasn't always this way. He admits he spent a lot of time (and money), on recruiting, onboarding, and investing in (what turned out to be) complete duds. So what changed?
Woodiwiss sits down with Breakthrough Academy hosts Benji Carlson and Danny Kerr to talk recruitment, personality tests, why investing in your people should be your #1 priority, and, yikes, conflict resolution.
His approach will blow your mind, and make you take a long hard look in the mirror. Don't say we didn't warn you.
