YOU CAN'T AFFORD TO WAIT!
The skilled labor shortage impacts every level of the construction industry. Over one-third of all construction managers are expected to retire by the end of 2022 and over half of the current management positions will be vacant by 2026.
THE TIME TO FOCUS ON LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT IS NOW.
LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT FORUM
BUILDING INDUSTRY LEADERS
The Leadership Development Forum (LDF) is a 9-month intensive management education program that meets monthly. Participants receive dynamic coaching that teaches and empowers them to be great leaders. In addition to leadership development training, participants also receive training from industry leaders that prepare them to navigate "the business side of business". Topics include: Labor Law, Safety in Construction, Technology and Innovation, Financial Literacy, Government Affairs, Business Writing, Risk Management and more!

Seating is limited to 30 participants.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND?
  • Employees on a leadership trajectory within their company
  • Individuals currently in a leadership position or in a position of increasing responsibility

WHY PARTICIPATE?
  • The purpose of the LDF is to develop construction professionals into leaders by providing them with the knowledge and skills necessary to succeed in leadership roles within their company, and the industry.
  • Retain your top performers.
  • Plan for future shortages in the construction management workforce.
  • Improve the quality of your team.
  • Develop yourself professionally.
HERE'S WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
