Have you ever been in a position where someone has leverage over you? They have the power to influence your decisions, often against your will.  

Employees having leverage is a struggle most business owners have faced, especially in the construction industry. You may not want to be confrontational about it, preferring to shrug it off. Unfortunately, this usually doesn’t work and it can bring more harm, robbing you of the joy and the freedom of running your business.
