Building Future Leadership
This program offers attendees a tremendous opportunity to continue their path of success and become more involved as current and future leaders of the construction industry in Iowa. It introduces participants to MBI, while focusing on communication and stepping outside of your comfort zone. The class also takes on a project that will have a positive impact on Iowa’s commercial construction industry.
MB EYE on the Future is the only program that MBI offers that has an application process, which requires an employer recommendation and selection procedure. Participants are nominated by their company’s executive management and complete an application for consideration in the program. Careful consideration of all nominations and applications is then made by a selection committee.
A main component of the MB EYE on the Future program is the ‘The Leaders Course’® presented by Ken Bradford of Dallas, Texas. Ken works with the class the first five months of the program, boosting their confidence, communication and leadership skills, as well as leading each participant to become a more effective and charismatic leader. Ken’s sessions are not about taking notes, listening to lectures or watching lengthy slide presentations. Ken focuses on learning by doing, by participating, taking risks and applying the materials he teaches on a daily basis.
