THE most-challenging issue for construction owners is the quest to identify leaders for the long-term and then, how best to equip them with the skills and demeanor to address future issues with our future workforce. No easy task, to stay the least.
In this session, developed especially for the Ignite Construction Summit, veteran construction industry consultant Brad Humphrey (author of “The Contractor’s Best Friend” newsletters and podcasts, and star of his groundbreaking “Two-Minute Drill” video series), will share with you how to spot those individuals who are not merely good workers but who offer glimpses into what they potentially are capable of being as a leader. Most people are not even aware of this “latent development” reality that they could be a leader… but you’ll learn how you can identify them and how you can capitalize on raising people to their fullest potential.
Then, drawing on elements from his Champion Leadership and Coaching the Emerging Leader training workbooks, Brad will introduce you to some proven techniques to invest in these underdeveloped leaders, boosting their confidence and effectiveness to lead out for you and your company!
