Building a high performing construction team takes careful thought and strategizing. In addition to hiring talented construction professionals, you need to train each team member to have the right combination of skills so that they are performing at their best. This includes developing their ability to collaborate, concentrate, and manage their stress. You also need systems in place to reinforce trust, productivity and efficiency.

Safety: Stress Management and Mindfulness

Construction work is often mentally and physically stressful. Not only will your team have to deal with safety and health concerns not found in most other careers, but construction workers can have little control over their schedule. The work itself is also physically demanding. When building a strong construction team, stress management needs to be one of the focuses of your strategy. When stress is not managed properly, team members will be more likely to make risky mistakes.
