#1 You don’t know what you don’t know

The tendency of leadership in construction is to be out front with all the answers.  You become comfortable with what you know & strive to show everyone the knowledge you have. But, if you have knowledge, why are you always putting out fires?  Because, no individual has the knowledge to foresee or solve all issues and, things that worked out in the past may not work out now. So, take a breath & realize you don’t (yet) know what you don’t know.  Check your ego, ask the right questions, and listen to your team, then, apply what you already know to what you have learned & take action. Taking the less informed path will lead to added time and cost in the long run.  Be diligent and always strive to find the perfect balance between learning and action.
