G4C Wales – Build Team Spirit in Construction with Gareth Jenkins

29 Mar
Thursday 29th March 2012
5.30pm – 7.30pm

Good teamwork can be the secret to success in Welsh construction.

If you can get it right, teams can add value to any project and help cut costs as well as achieve Government targets on waste and low carbon. It is always tough to maintain the right team spirit that enhances performance and it’s not unusual to see relationships become tense, fractious and fall apart as a result of increasing economic pressure and the demand for quick results.

Right now, more than ever, it is hard to maintain a culture of teamwork. It is very tempting when the pressure rises to lose sight of what is best for the team and to concentrate on your own struggles.

So how do you hold the team together and put the group first, focussed on the long term goals of value? Why not turn to the best example of teamwork in Wales – rugby? Why not learn from the experience of Gareth Jenkins?

Gareth played for Llanelli 259 times scoring 50 tries and represented the Barbarians before being forced to retire through injury.  His playing career was followed by an impressive 937 matches as Scarlets Head Coach, coaching on a British Lions Tour of 2005, Welsh Head Coach in 2006 – 2007 and also coach of the Barbarians.

Gareth Jenkins has played, coached and managed teams which have comprised of the very best sportsmen within Rugby. A renowned innovator within the game, Gareth was known for building teams with a strong work ethic and got the best from the opportunities and resources open to him. He focused on creating environments which people were motivated and driven to succeed for the betterment of the team as a whole irrespective of the outside pressures placed on them. Just what Welsh construction needs now!!

At an informal CEW G4C event you can hear his stories of adulation, excitement, success, failures and disappointments and gain a light hearted insight into what makes a successful team, how to promote teamwork and deal with challenges and disappointments.

G4C is part of the Constructing Excellence Network.  It is the place for newcomers to the construction industry to collaborate, develop and promote best practice.  G4C is a driving force behind industry change for young people in the construction industry. It seeks to harness the power of the next generation to change the construction industry for the better in line with the whole collaborative working agenda by giving us all an opportunity to voice our concerns and press for change in the areas of business that we will all work in for many years to come.
