Your Construction Company has a Vibe

So, What is a Vibe?

One dictionary describes it this way:

a person's emotional state or the atmosphere of a place as communicated to and felt by others.

Another dictionary has this to say about the word vibe:

distinctive feeling or quality capable of being sensed

Did you notice that the word vibe has to do with something felt or gives off a feeling?

Your vibe is non-verbal communication. And it speaks loudly!

Boost Your Construction Company’s Vibe

Typically, the vibe of a construction business is (knowingly or unknowingly) dictated by the leadership. For instance, the constantly frazzled or grumpy boss leads to a continually frazzled or grumpy crew. And the boss who rolls with the punches, has a great sense of humor, and generally enjoys life will generate that vibe with the team.

Each desirable vibe trait is followed by its undesirable counterpoint in the following list. Read through and see which of these traits you already rock and which need improvement. For the most part, the list is self-explanatory. With a few, there are links to give you more information.

Assured – Cocky

Composed – Arrogant

Confident – Hesitant

Self-controlled – Uncontrolled

Focused – Distracted

Engaged – Uninterested

Improve the Vibe

Use the above list to determine which traits you

  • Already enjoy

  • Need to improve

  • Will develop

If you need help knowing how to proceed, keep in mind what Rudyard Kipling said, "Gardens are not made by singing 'Oh, how beautiful,' and sitting in the shade."

Put in the time and effort to improve your own and your construction company’s vibe.
