In this episode of the Built for the Trades podcast, host Dan Dowdy recaps his past interview with Allie Perez with George Plumbing Company in San Antonio. Dan and Allie discussed the benefits of minorities and women in the trades and ultimately diversifying who you surround yourself with.
Dan refers to “The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership” by John Maxwell, specifically, law number eight, which is the law of magnetism. Taking a profound account of who you are as a leader will allow you to understand how to attract the type of people you want to bring into your business.
“Now think about diversifying, think about okay, this has gotten me to this far, how can I go to the next level and start to open up your eyes to the opportunities to hire women into the trades.”– Dan Dowdy
How do you do that? Listen to this episode for these top tips:
- You are who you attract and how to use that to your advantage in hiring and promoting.
- How diversifying your hiring prospects could benefit your business growth.
“Your team is going to be more dynamic, and it will help you push past that growth ceiling and take your business to the next level.”– Dan Dowdy
