Leading Project Performance & Productivity

To be a leader on a construction project requires a self-understanding of one’s dominant leadership style and a review of when to use one’s dominant style and when a different approach is likely to be more successful.  Not every situation is a “nail” therefore not every leader style should start with a hammer – recognizing these differences will make the supervisor be a more successful leader on the project. Leading others should lead to improved jobsite productivity. We will review key concepts in improving the productivity of field forces on the jobsite.  Particular attention will be focused on improving planning skills related to productivity improvement.
