The 8th Waste: People and Their Behavior Cost More than We Know (Dallas/Fort Worth CoP)

The majority of waste in our projects can be traced back to communication and the lack of synergy among the team.  You will hear from an owner, a designer, a builder, and team coach on how the team partnered to decrease waste and to influence greater collaboration, communication and mutual respect using competencies, behavioral assessments, and onboarding.  We will share our methods and our lessons learned that we have applied over the past 10 years on Cook Children’s Medical Center projects.

Our panel will discuss their experiences around the four pillars used in the team self-selections /team on-boarding process:

  • Behaviors
  • Individual’s personal commitment
  • Emotional agility
  • Ability to embrace change and embrace IPD

We continue to learn that the essence of synergy among project teams comes from valuing the differences–the mental, emotional and psychological differences between people, in addition to the very basic differences in technical disciplines. 

We have found that individuals become an effective and valued team member when they have the humility to recognize their own limitations.  Waste is eliminated when team members begin to appreciate and embrace the rich resources in interactions with  other team members.  Elements of those interactions include mutual respect, collaboration and accountability.
