One of the most important questions a client can ask a potential construction company is ‘What do you do to ensure great leadership?’
Having effective, well-trained leaders doesn’t happen by chance but it makes the world of difference to results and to the whole project experience. A promise means little if there is not clear, knowledgeable leadership to anticipate possibilities and navigate the diverse and changing demands on a construction team.
At Rohrig, we believe developing our leaders to lead effectively is the foundation for taking everything we do to the next level.
Our leadership development program focuses particularly on five of the essential areas where we expect our leaders to excel – communication, accountability, resilience, teamwork and self-awareness. And we don’t just talk about it, we give our whole team and managers the opportunity to understand it, experience it and challenge themselves.
That’s where our recent Experiential Leadership Development Weekend comes in. In early October, more than 40 Rohrig employees from Sydney and Brisbane spent the weekend on a property at Bellthorpe in Queensland for a leadership intensive. Five ‘stations’ were set up, one for each of the essential elements of leadership, and small groups spent time at each station listening to specialist speakers and participating in training.
Once the formal parts of the program were over, there were also opportunities for team-building in a social setting – sharing a BBQ of slow-roasted Bellthorpe beef, a lip-sync battle, a night-cap round the campfire and setting up camp for the night.
A final feedback session with Rohrig’s senior leadership panel (General Manager and Directors), consolidated the importance of the weekend’s lessons.
Insights gained by all those involved – from project managers to site managers to foremen – will all be put into practice to enhance clients’ project experience with Rohrig.
‘About us’ is really about you. Our first concern is meeting your objectives whoever you are and whatever the challenges of your commercial construction project.
