What do George Washington, Benedict Arnold and West Point have to do with the business of construction? Plenty, as it relates to leadership and teamwork. Following up on a recent company field trip to historic West Point where the MBC staff followed Ret. Col. Kevin Farrell on an authentic West Point "Staff Ride", we gained an understanding of the value of building a cohesive team and its importance to our country winning The Revolutionary War. Colonel Farrell has created and led numerous staff rides for civilian and military clients in Belgium, France, Germany, Tunisia, and Uzbekistan, as well as American Revolutionary War and Civil War Battlefields. His civilian clients include Bayer, Mars, General Mills, NetApp, GE, and USAA. Currently he is the Chief Operating Officer for Battlefield Leadership, LLC.
Sean and Chris then invited Col. Farrell to continue the leadership training at Murphy Brothers' Mamaroneck, NY facility, sharing the benefits of the recognizing "the first shot fired" and following up with the "after-action review" (AAR) among many other battle-tested management lessons that we can apply to our business of building and renovating homes and area clubs. "The competitive advantage of any organization is being an aligned, cohesive team led by inspired leaders", said Col. Farrell, "One in which trust, respect, confidence, and competence are exhibited throughout. MBC has it all." Thank you, Col. Farrell...Murphy Brothers Contracting salutes you!
