Construction Contractors with Class!

Construction Contractors with Class!

Construction contractors with class are a cut above. By that, I mean those contractors who include education in their business growth strategy are exceptional and more likely to see better outcomes.

Being intentional, planned, and prepared to engage yourself and your employees in a path guided toward strategic learning will set you apart in the construction world.

Whether someone has gone to college or participated in some other form of higher education isn’t the issue. The idea is to set yourself up to learn, constantly seek, and continually grow. In fact, sometimes folks go to college to get a degree. Wise people, on the other hand, go to college to get an education. The same idea holds for learning outside the scope of college, trade school, or any formal educational process.

It doesn’t matter how many builds you have under your belt; learning from practice, experience, and expert advice is always helpful.

Savvy Contractors Take Classes

Know your need – know your goal.

In whatever you endeavor to learn, the idea is to:

  • Reduce mistakes

  • Curtail wasted time

  • Lessen struggle or pain

  • Diminish vulnerability

  • And at the same time:

  • Increase enjoyment

  • Boost productivity

  • Escalate effectiveness

  • Expand efficiency

Look around and see what areas of your business acumen you need to bolster or increase. Once you’ve decided what you need, you can seek places to acquire the learning. It could be through your trade association, in a continuing education classroom, at a college, or online.

For example, these online classes, which may be beneficial for construction business owners, were found through a quick google search.

Discerning Contractors Send Employees to Class

One apparent reason for sending employees to class is that they will be better equipped to perform the tasks and assignments you give them. Another less obvious reason is that employees know you care about them when you aid them in their personal and professional growth.

Three types of classes to consider are:

  1. Craft – Consider new tools, materials, or better ways to achieve the task.

  2. Software or Equipment Knowledge – Think about new bells and whistles or methods.

  3. Management Skills – Provide ways to achieve advanced professional development.

Sharp Contractors Watch for Classes

Whom should you consider when determining which classes to offer or provide? Well, everyone.

  • Office staff

  • Field employees

  • Apprentices or Interns

Classes can take as little as a couple of hours, a half-day, a few weeks, or several months.
