Good leaders take the time to listen to both sides of a story before forming an opinion and acting on it. When I hear an individual complain about someone else, I try imagining what the other person might be saying or thinking. Nothing is as simple as he said/she said or he did/she did. When emotions are involved it adds to the challenge of sorting through it all and coming up with a reasonable conclusion. This ability to wade through different perspectives before acting, is the sign of a great leader.

Here are three things to consider when trying to come to a mutually satisfying resolution: Read More

Who doesn’t love Southern Utah! It’s one of the greatest places in the world to live, work and play.

By | Blog, Bonneville Builders

In every relationship, personal or professional, you will be exposed to conflict.

This pressure to perform is exasperated by subcontractors stretched thin by a reduced labor force who are also at times unqualified. Read More
