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.
