The Great Resignation continues to impact every industry, including design and construction. Team cohesion and integration can have real impacts on team chemistry, design excellence, project budgets and schedules. There are projects that are the "few" where the experience was fun and engaging, where relationships flourished, teams thrived and overcame challenges together to achieve success for the collective. Conversely, there are projects that are the "many"- where the experience was the opposite! The design-build delivery model promotes opportunities for project (and team) success, making the "few" more achievable. Aligning and leveraging your teammate's strengths leads to personal fulfillment, career growth and a culture where people thrive, which reduces turnover. Utilizing best practices tools (like StrengthsFinder and CoreClarity) will uncover an individual's natural talents and how they are hardwired. This data can be used to assemble the "right" team members to solve for an owner's unique challenge, drive team heath over the duration of the project, and on-board additional teammates. In this dynamic program, you'll hear perspectives from a designer, a builder, and an owner, on how our industry can use the efficiencies of design-build project delivery to sustain team cohesion and integration, resulting in greater staff engagement, empowerment, and retention.
