Foundations of a Field Leader

Laying the Groundwork for Effective Field Leadership

This field leadership development program is designed to provide attendees with a host of tools and information to help them excel as leaders in the areas of Leadership, Risk Management, Communication, and Personal Effectiveness.  Leading a team, crew, or group of individuals in a commercial construction project environment takes an exceptional person with the right skill set and personality, along with construction knowledge and awareness.  Leaders in the field must be able to manage time, equipment, materials, and most importantly, people. This program will provide the tools and help develop the skills of attendees in becoming successful leaders.

The audience for this program are individuals who show promise as a potential field leader, or those who are currently in a leadership role and would like to improve in the areas of leadership, risk management, communication and personal skills, such as time management, prioritizing, and goal setting.
