Psychology of a Successful Team

With CGP CEO Jim Robinson We feel like it’s pretty easy to identify a bad boss. We can almost instantly list out the reasons he or she is unsuccessful and where they went wrong. If only it were that easy to be a good boss. There are so many leadership strategies out there, and there is a fine line of success between two opposite ends of the spectrum of fear-based dictator and nice-guy/girl pushover. So how do we find that line before we set ourselves up for failure within our company? The CEO of FM Evolution’s sponsor, Jim Robinson is here to give us the keys to his 35+ year run as a successful leader. “I believe I’m here to serve other people.

This is one of the most important factors when we choose jobs in this era. We’re looking for where we will feel valued and taken-care-of, and with present business saturation, we don’t really have to settle for less anymore. Asphalt work is among the trickiest of the facility management niches to work within. Not only are we struggling with our main topic, company culture, which

We talk to so many amazing contracting and facility management companies and time and time again we are most impressed by one thing: giving back. At CGP, this is our main goal in our business and our personal lives, so we always want to plug and support other companies doing the most to improve the world around them.

Can't Stop the Mop... or Can We?
