Ask JW: Teamwork in Synthetic Turf

TEAM- “Together Everyone Achieves More”

 

That cliché never gets old, especially when dragging heavy rolls of turf all day long. I have always experienced accomplishing larger goals in life while being part of a TEAM. Wikipedia states that “teamwork is the collaborative effort of a group to achieve a common goal or to complete a task in the most effective and efficient way”. 

Creating a good turf team is crucial. I teach companies teams how to be a team. Just because you have a few guys with knives does not make them a team. A turf team requires installers that care and have passion for their actions. To be good at something in life you must care for what it is.  Great turf teams have members/installers that bring forth synergy to show their talents and blend strengths. When establishing a turf team, it is important to break down each task for each member. This may mean creating tasks for each member on every installation. I recommend dedicating tasks that match up with skill and experience.

 

This month ASK JW will explain how crucial Teamwork is in being a successful turf contractor/Installer.
