The Toolbox of a Leader

Contractors know how important it is for their crafts people to have a toolbox (and bags) full of well maintained tools.

These tools allow the experienced crafts person to effectively deal with any situation they come across on the jobsite.  

Building Your Leadership "Toolbox"

As a leader in a construction business you must build your own toolbox.  Just like the craft tools; many of the leadership tools require training, coaching and constant practice to be truly effective.  

And just like a journey level craftsperson a leader is constantly training others on how to use the tools while always continuing their road towards mastery.

Cash Flow Tip 3 - Contractual Details Matter
The reason we are called contractors is because we work off of a contract that defines the scope and terms of what we build. How we negotiate and manage the contract determines cash flow.
Time-on-Tools and Minimum Required Installation
Labor productivity IS NOT the biggest problem with project productivity. Under similar conditions the variation in how fast two crafts people actually “turn wrenches” is not that big. Focus on these three areas.
Production Tracking - Total Daily Production
Look at productivity as a daily “Jar” where your objective is to pack as much “Earned Value” into it as possible. Look at your costs in three major categories and focus on tracking what matters the most.
