Abstract

In construction, higher productivity means seeing the final result sooner, which in turn creates satisfaction. The work dissatisfaction can be one factor that will increase costs, produce time delays and generally reduce productivity on most types of projects. One way that construction managers can influence productivity is by determining how smooth the work will flow and how much work can be accomplished. Construction managers also influences productivity by how they influence worker’s attitude, which is a major element in worker motivation and determining how much work will be accomplished. The aim of this research is to identify and present the effect of leadership in construction productivity improvement; through leadership skills and styles, because productivity is one of the most important factors affecting the over all performance of any organization large or small. At the construction projects, improved productivity decreases costs and time duration as an indcator of project performance. 

Keywords: Leadership, Construction,  Productivity Improvement.
