In the construction industry, we are builders first. Our goal is to complete successful projects. A savvy business owner knows to take advantage of strategies that can help accomplish that. One of those processes is developing trust within their company and with other companies involved in a project. Although trust is intangible, it’s a pervasive foundation for success.

Join host Todd Weyandt and guest Eric Thomas of Autodesk as they talk about the state and definition of trust in construction, how to face interpersonal challenges in the industry, creating a space where ideas can flourish, taking the stigma out of failing, and maintaining good work relationships.

One benefit of this is that safety is being accomplished at a level we haven’t seen in the past. Despite the curveballs that have been thrown at the industry in the past year, workers have had a can-do mentality. They get to work and figure it out.
