Emotional Intelligence (EQ) is recognized as one of the most powerful indicators of success in any business and it is especially important on a construction site. Becoming more aware of how EQ impacts performance, teamwork and engagement is the first step to becoming more successful in stressful jobsite situations.
In 2019, the ABC Keystone Young Professionals (YPs) Committee implemented a new program, titled LeaderTrak, to recognize their peers who exemplify the group’s mission: “We will develop the next generation of future leaders through: (1) educating YPs on the overall operations and offerings of ABC, (2) integrating YPs into other areas of ABC that align with their skills/interests, and (3) positioning committed YPs in places of increased responsibility and growing influence within ABC.”
The world is always changing and always adapting. When we are asked to change and adapt with it, that can be tough. Whether it is a new piece of technology, a new process, or even a new teammate, we are constantly asked to evaluate and implement. At Wohlsen Construction we have five core values, continuous improvement is one of those five. We are taught to reflect on the process of a task or project to help identify waste and eliminate it. While eliminating waste in an organization can sound negative, it is not. Eliminating waste is essential to aid the development of employees and increase organizational efficiency.
