Shovel Ready™ Show
Advancing the People Side of Construction
Building things is fun! Projects are often frustrating!
The term shovel ready means that a project is ready to go. But, what about you? Are you ready to go? Are you in the right mindset every day for the success of your project - or does frustration and stress creep in? How you feel about your project, often determines what is going to happen – good, bad or ugly.
You are the average of the 5 people you hang around with the most. The Shovel Ready™ Show lets you hang out with icons, pioneers, and heroes from inside and outside of construction. You will learn tips, tools, and tactics; and be inspired to take yourself and your team to the next level in your, career, project, and organization. Come hang out at the Shovel Ready™ Show so, you can be Shovel Ready™ every day!

Avatar: Jeff is a 30 year old project manager for a multinational Construction Company. He gets up at 4am every workday and drives an hour to work. He is totally stressed out, so that it makes it hard for him to think, let alone enjoy his day. He gets to work and finds that overnight dozens of new “fires” have broken out and no one seems to be addressing them. He is trying to hold it together, but his frustration level continues to grow as does his blood pressure and dissatisfaction with his job. Everyday he feels like saying “take this job and shove it”. After working 12 hours, he drives home for an hour where he has a pity party with his wife, who tells their two children to leave daddy alone, he’s had a hard day. The next day – it all starts again.
