Construction Institute Leadership Blog: A Combination of committee members’ perspectives

Posted By Leadership Program Taskforce, Wednesday, October 17, 2018

We are in a precarious period of transformation across the A/E/C industries and looking for ways to incorporate new techniques and philosophies into our own business.  We want to know how to become effective leaders in this environment. All of us know people who lead organizations.  Some do it gently while others take a more combative approach.  Although, it does take certain characteristics such as discipline, understanding, and passion we know that there is no solitary style of leadership.  The real trick is to know when, and how to use your skills. 


At the Construction Institute’s First Annual Leadership Conference each of us has an opportunity to learn, interact, and hear from industry leaders such as, Jim Cramer, Former EVP, AIA, Founder, DesignInteligence, Vaki Mawema, Senior Associate, Gensler, and Susan Klawans, Lean Strategist Consultant, Former Senior VP, Director of Operational Excellence and Planning, Gilbane Building Company.  The full day program will also feature two panel discussions focusing on navigating leadership in the changing A/E/C industry, and the second panel on technology, entrepreneurs, generational differences, and delivery methods.  In addition, the program will also offer 8 breakout workshop sessions to choose from including such topics as “Listening Like a Leader”, “Building a Bulletproof Business”, “How to Create Systems to Allow for Change”, and “Starting Your Path in Other Realms of Leadership”.  This event is to take place on Thursday November 15th at Eversource in Berlin, CT.  Learn more at

IndustryREdesign Workshop #3

Posted By Brent Robertson, Fathom, Wednesday, December 6, 2017


Over the past year, attendees of IndustryREdesign workshops have been exploring collaboration as a vehicle for more creativity, satisfying relationships and much more successful projects. In the first workshop, we explored, why collaboration matters and over the course of a project, what kind of collaboration has the biggest effect. In the second, we used those ideas to inspire a creative exercise to design a pitch where the winning firm won by proposing the most collaborative approach to a kickoff meeting.  


In the third workshop, we will challenge one of the biggest limiters to collaboration, contracts. We will create, in real-time, a manifesto. A set of principles that if followed, would set teams up for success right from the start, and have the benefits of collaboration be fully realized by all involved. Join us, and be an author of change. 


As always, attendance is limited.  Click here to register.
