Adam doesn’t just like his job as a construction industry motivational speaker, he loves the AEC industry!

Adam Markel, a former real estate attorney, longtime real estate investor and leading construction industry speaker has proven that resilience is critical to success in the Architectural, Engineering and Construction (AEC) Industry. By investing in the wellbeing of your employees, you empower them to be more productive and adapt smoothly to whatever challenges come their way.

Your Architectural, Engineering and construction employees operate in high-stress environments with long hours, tight deadlines and sometimes dangerous conditions. This can wear heavily on their mental health. On top of that, the dynamics of the post-catastrophe economy have put even more strain on office workers and safety teams. Emergency regulations are becoming permanent and worker-related litigation is on the rise.

If we’ve learned anything from 2020, it is that we need to go beyond management models of the past to keep up with new technology and globalization. Adapting to change isn’t always easy but it’s the only way to move forward. The game is moving fast which is why it’s more important than ever to pivot and plan for the future.

One of the best ways to energize your workers and ignite change is to book a motivational speaker for your AEC and construction organization.

A construction business motivational speaker like Adam Markel gets things moving in the AEC industry by outlining ways to replace an unhealthy “tough guy” culture with a “got your back culture” that supports effective communication. His workshops help organizations address the specific issues needed to become change-proof.

The 4-Tier Recovery Map

Failure and success often rely on day-to-day interactions. Without cohesion, your best employees end up working around each other rather than with each other. Adam’s construction industry leadership workshops kickstart collaboration through a combination of powerful stories and interactive exercises.

Before the event, we conduct a resilience assessment for each employee in order to understand unique challenges. One tool we use to get started is a 4-Tier Recovery Map, a short questionnaire addressing 4 areas of well-being: Mental, Emotional, Physical and Spiritual.

The 4-Tier Recovery Map was designed to help people create healthy habits that address all 4 quadrants of well-being. Each of your employees receives a personal recovery map to help manage stress, recover and build resilience.

Attendees of Adam’s resilience keynote speaker events receive a guide to small pivots that can help them consistently be at their best, a crucial factor in a vibrant company culture. It also creates a more productive workforce as people find sustainable work-life harmony.

Resilience goes beyond bouncing back. It’s the ability to thrive – mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually – regardless of what may be happening in your environment.

– Adam Markel

Resilience is the Key to Unlocking Sustainable Profits

Most construction companies are great at cutting costs and controlling their budgets but fall short when it comes to making productive investments into their workforce. So how exactly can you build more productive and resilient teams?

It’s all about finding ways to increase collective performance. A focus on employee well-being will considerably increase performance as a whole. But one of the most difficult challenges as a leader is nurturing consistent, high-performing teams.

A motivational speaker for construction organizations can be the spark you need to design that resilient infrastructure. Resilient workers can align their goals with their actions, inspire those around them, adapt to new technologies and reduce risk.

The chain reaction of positivity coupled with the law of small changes has proven time and time again: companies that focus on small pivots increase profits.

Resilient companies who prioritize safety and the well-being of their employees can supercharge their teams to make them more effective than ever.

Smart companies regularly host a motivational speaker for construction industry corporate events to keep team performance high.
