Coachability and Capability Matrix
Sustainable growth over time in your career and as a company has to do with being coachable and capable. Optimum growth occurs when we are stretching ourselves and others just beyond our current capabilities and then developing the needed capabilities.
Using a Vision to Create Desire and Context for Tasks
There is a whole lot of work involved in building projects and building a construction company. It is easy to get mired down in endless to-do lists, processes, and problems. The thing that holds this all together and accelerates performance is the vision.
Coaching and "GPS Feedback"
Contracting is a business where operational excellence is a major factor in winning. Project success which we all know is very different than “winning” the project depends on thousands of details over many months executed well.
