Tolerance-Leadership Enemy #1

What we stand for as leaders, not the values we print and hang on the office walls, become the standards of the organizations we lead. We rarely take a hard right or left away from our values/standards, it is slight deviations over time that end up getting us out of alignment. It is when we adopt and consistently enforce our core values and standard that we can see our organizations catapult forward as marketplace leaders.

I was born into the trades. in 1977 at the age of 13, I was issued an apprenticeship card by the city of Toledo. In 1981 at the age of 17, I qualified and successfully passed the 6-hour journeyman’s test in Ohio and became the youngest licensed journeyman ever at that time. 4 years later at the age of 21, I passed the contractors test and became the youngest licensed contractor in the state of Ohio’s history. in 1993, I moved to Tampa Bay and went on to build two multi-million-dollar home service companies. In 2018, I felt God’s calling to “Chase My Lion” and for the first time start my own home service company, Comfort All Stars Air Conditioning & Electrical. We set out to grow to $5M in revenue in 5 years and are on pace for that. I believe that tolerance has and is my biggest weakness as a leader, I believe it’s the same for many. I struggle daily to remember what I tolerate becomes my standards.
