Fight or Flight: How Stone Age Emotional Reactions Hinder Your Business Success

At a genetic level, the human fight or flight response is what helped keep us safe in the very dangerous world of our remote ancestors.

And yet that’s exactly what happens in times of high stress or emotion.

Please watch this week as Wayne explores this perfectly natural human behavior and explains how high stress fight or flight responses might be holding your company back. He also prescribes five techniques for getting control of high stress situations, and construction is a high stress business to say the least!
