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 https://construction.org/event/2018-AEC-Leadership-Conference.
