Leadership Skills for AEC Professionals: Strategy and Tactics

This course is not your average leadership training seminar. 

This course is a no fluff, data-driven strategy course that aims to equip you with the power to solve any strategic problem inside your firm.

Leadership Skills for AEC Professionals is brand new for 2022!  Zweig Group’s Strategy Approach, previously reserved for Advisory clients, is brought to the training environment for the first time ever. 


This course equips leaders with practical skills to identify opportunities, develop and execute strategy, and build support for initiatives within their organization.

This training provides a high impact learning experience that is designed to help emerging and current leaders master the one area that is so often neglected in modern leadership training: developing and executing strategy to solve complex problems.

Using a case-based approach, this course will teach you how to:

  1. Identify a strategic opportunity within your firm;
  2. Develop a strategic plan to capitalize on it;
  3. Develop an implementation plan to successfully execute your plan;
  4. Develop the leadership skills necessary to effectively build and lead a coalition within your firm to execute on your opportunity.

This course takes a project-based approach to identifying, dissecting, and solving a series of issues that plague modern AEC firms.  Attendees will collaboratively work business cases that focus on leading through uncertainty, recruiting and retention, upskilling staff to close competency gaps within their firms, enhancing client experience to drive higher fees, and staff performance management, among others.   

At the conclusion of this training, attendees will leave with a personalized strategic plan, a series of new skills to successfully lead the implementation of their plan at their organization, and a leader briefing plan to bring back to their firm.

Some of the topics covered include:

Day 1: Strategy

Module 1: Flushing out the root causes of issues

Module 2: Evaluating and selecting strategic solutions

Module 3: Creating a Strategy Roadmap

Module 4: Establishing Goals and Building Strategic KPIs

Day 2: Implementation and Skills

Module 5: Implementation

  • Decision-making
  • Stakeholder engagement
  • Improving your influence
  • Change Management

Module 6: Selling your idea

  • Leadership briefing
  • Communicating and “selling” strategy inside your firm.

Struggles to successfully execute on strategy plague modern AEC firms, with multiple reports indicating that up to two-thirds of strategic plans fail at the execution stage.  Coupled with Zweig Group’s research, which consistently ranks strategy execution as a key competitive advantage in fast growth and high profit firms, this course takes the guesswork out of solving complex issues so that you can use strategy to drive higher performance inside your firm.

  • Experienced principals looking to enhance their knowledge of leadership in the modern AEC firm
  • Seasoned leaders that are looking to improve their strategy skills
  • Department, division, or business function leads that handle strategic issues inside their firms
  • Project Managers and Senior Project Managers that are looking to take on leadership roles within their firms.
