The “It Factor”

June 10, 2012 by Jeff Forrest

Does time move faster as you get older, because I can’t believe that it is already May? The first four months of this year have flown by and given all my travels, it’s hard for me to remember very much of it. loopy phone case iphone 8 plus iphone 7 case dior iphone 8 real leather case christian phone case iphone 6 iphone 6 case hip hop My staff has been after me for this month’s blog for weeks so I’m finally taking a deep breath and diving in.

Suffice it to say, the WPC team has been working harder than ever to stay ahead of the competition by doing that “thing” we do well. iphone 8 plus case card iphone 7 plus shockproof phone cases white iphone 7 case tweed iphone 7 case iphone 8 plus case barber iphone 6 plus light case Those efforts have been rewarded with new project starts such as Oakmonte Village at Lake Mary for Royal Senior Care. the 1975 iphone 7 case reflex case iphone x hard shell iphone 6 case This 114 unit assisted living facility adds to the 165 independent living units we completed in 2009, along with the surrounding luxury villa homes. iphone 7 dreamcatcher case iphone 7 plus case for boys black iphone 6 case leather In addition, we started Serenades by Sonata in Winter Garden, FL. iphone 8 plus red case iphone 8 aux case Serenades is a senior living memory care facility and our third negotiated project for Sonata Health Care. shock case iphone 7 plus battery cases for iphone 7 plus On top of that, we began renovation work for The Berkley Group on a project in Ft. iphone 8 case with clip iphone 6 plus diamonte case girls iphone 7 case silicone black marble iphone x case the greatest showman phone case iphone 7 plus iphone 7 phone case fold Lauderdale, FL as well as site work on their Vacation Village at Parkway project in Orlando, FL. once upon a time phone case iphone 7 pug phone case iphone 6 Our renovation division started projects for Hilton Grand Vacations, Holiday Inn Club Vacations, Marriott International and Starwood Vacation Ownership in Orlando, FL. iphone 8 plus jack wills case iphone 7 plus front and back case leather phone case iphone 6 plus dolphin iphone 7 case iphone 7 phone cases colour ueebai case for iphone 7 iphone 7 phone cases kate spade phone case marble iphone 6 iphone 6 case protective lip Thank you to all these clients for putting your trust in us and for appreciating the value we add.

Speaking of value…at the urging of my new friend Elise Mitchell, I wanted to talk more about some of the things that I think good clients want and need, and how WPC is committed to providing those things. new phone case iphone 6 uprosa iphone 7 case iphone 8 qi charger case pink iphone 6 case glitter Elise asked me what I thought the “It Factor” was all about, and what the qualities are in an ideal contractor and true partner for clients? I believe the “It Factor” at WPC is our passion and constant never-ending desire to cultivate and maintain our relationships. iphone 7 plus phone cases football iphone 7 metalic case iphone 7 plus case light blue iphone 6 kawaii case I hear this talked about over and over again by other companies, but very few of them walk the talk. iphone 7 charging phone case black iphone 7 phone case purple These relationships include not only our clients, but also our subcontractors, suppliers, consultants, and corporate friends. iphone 6 leather case brown iphone 8 case indian iphone 8 plus phone case with holder girl iphone 7 case queen iphone 6 case iphone 7 plus case bling dark green iphone 6 case iphone 7 battery charger case red To answer Elise’s question directly however, I’ll focus upstream on our clients.

We all know relationships can be difficult. iphone 7 cases animals iphone 7 case disney 3d iphone 7 phone cases liquid glitter iphone 6 battery case chargeable case for iphone 7 unique iphone x case iphone 6 case panic at the disco They involve people, emotions, trust, mutual respect, integrity, openness, a willingness to admit mistakes, and above all, the ability to deal with adversity. iphone 8 plus case with selfie light pipetto iphone 7 plus case patterned iphone 6 case

So what if you took a construction company and told your employees that there number one job, aside from providing a safe working environment, was to make sure they took care of the relationship with the client. iphone 8 plus head case iphone 7 case checkered iphone 8 case grey Of course quality, schedule, and finances are all very important and a requirement in business, but if they focused on taking care of that relationship, they would be creating long term success. running case iphone 6 iphone 6 360 case rose gold rabbit phone case iphone 6 iphone 7 plus case navy deadpool iphone 8 plus case Isn’t that what it means to be a true partner? I also think it’s what a client wants and needs. tottenham iphone 7 case iphone 8 plus case light iphone 8 case protective thermal phone case iphone 7 iphone 7 case metal iphone 7 matte case They want us to care about their needs and their job and in turn we are rewarded with more work. iphone 7 military case iphone 7 arsenal case The “It Factor” at WPC is displayed everyday by the women and men that work hard everyday to build and keep our relationships.

I know we’re not perfect and there are plenty of occasions where we could have done a better job. iphone 8 slip case iphone 8 case anime iphone 7 cases apple iphone 6 zebra case I was recently interviewed for an article and was asked the simple question, “what makes your company different?” Instead of spewing out the usual sales and marketing BS like “we do quality work, on time, and within budget,” which is what every construction company will tell you—I told her, “we’ve been around a long time and made our fair share of mistakes and learned from almost all of them so we’ve got to be different.” She never expected that answer and she asked if I really wanted her put that in the article? I told her that if most people were honest, they’d tell you they weren’t perfect, but that if they apply their lessons learned, they will be better than their competitors. iphone 6 case purple marble flamingo iphone 7 plus case iphone 8 plus griffin case I call that “being a prophet of the obvious,” but then again I think most things are fairly obvious. iphone 6 case boys ps4 rubber case iphone x supernatural iphone 8 plus case one piece iphone 7 plus case iphone 7 plus cases for men I’m just glad that most companies don’t do them because it makes us look better.

There are plenty of things that go into the the “It Factor” and I’ll continue this conversation over the next few months.
