TRAINING & EDUCATION CLASSES

+ DECEMBER 2018

+ (12-19-2018) - Mentoring 101 - Best Practices of Mentoring

+EVENTS DETAILS

Time: Dec 19th, 2018 | 08:00 am to 12:00 pm
Class Description: If we reflect on our careers there are a handful of people who professionally helped mold and guide us along the way. Might have been that crusty superintendent, demanding coach, or patient grandparent. They were our mentors whether they knew it or not. As our industry retires massive numbers we are greeted with a shortage of young people. It is more important than ever to help pass along knowledge and skills to others. This program will focus on the key skills of mentoring. While we will focus on construction, these skills can help anyone in their home and work life. It doesn’t matter if you work in the corner office, front line of the project, or coaching from a side-line. We are all mentors and owe it to this great industry to help leave a legacy.
Cost: $100

    Time: Feb 1st, 2019 | 08:00 am to 12:00 pm
    Class Description: We often think of business development being done by a person who golfs a lot and wears nice shoes. All jokes aside, the “real” business development is being done on the construction front-line by the foremen, tradespeople, project managers, etc.. Those who see a client on a day to day basis. Those are the people who ensure repeat customers. This program will focus on business development for the non-business development people. Let’s discuss the simple, best practices that we all can do to help promote opportunities and repeat customers.
