Would You Fire the Foreman, or Not?


Every company has an organizational structure defining different roles and responsibilities. Typically, the owner or supervisor is responsible for making decisions and setting goals for their team. As a result, crew leaders are accountable to their boss for carrying out the instructions given to them. But what happens when they directly disobey an order?

Watch this week as Harvester Steve talks to Harvester Ed about a situation in which an owner contacted him. In this scenario, the foreman disobeyed a clear order from his boss who was an account manager. Pay close attention to what transpired. Put yourself in the shoes of the account manager and owner of the company to decide how you would have handled it.

Without accountability in your company, it’s going to be challenging to
