  • Contents

In this construction supervisor’s pocket-sized manual, construction managers and field supervisors alike will find a concise tool kit of leadership skills to motivate and marshal workers onsite. It provides solid, common sense guidelines to preempt, use, and refer to, as problems arise—from unexpected work stoppages to getting better performance and productivity from all. It provides quality tools specifically intended for construction crew supervisors, who have one of the toughest leadership job of all: managing workers with a wide range of skills under difficult and sometimes dangerous work conditions.

The accompanying glossary of common light construction terms and phrases will also be of immense help when one is faced with unfamiliar items and procedures on the job site. The book can also be used in the classroom as a useful adjunct to more traditional texts on construction management.

Readers will find…

  • How to set the right workplace stage for effectively managing construction work crews
  • Tips on handling difficult crew workers, measuring work performance, and providing useful feedback
  • Provides an invaluable glossary of common, on-the-job-site terminology and construction engineering terms.
