Leadership Skills for AEC Professionals is a 2-day seminar that was specifically developed to provide design and technical professionals with the skills to become more competent leaders. This course helps attendees develop and re-affirm the leadership skills, strategies, and techniques that will help them grow personally and professionally.
 Effective leadership skills are vital to the health and success of every company in any industry. Effective leaders motivate their teams to achieve exceptional results, inspire others to be better than they thought possible, and they create an environment where everyone is moving in the same, positive direction.
 This course is taught by expert leaders who are immersed in the AEC industry and have practical experience solving many of the challenges facing AEC firms.  This is not a course full of buzzwords or the latest fads.  This is a course filled with practical solutions design and technical professionals can use every day to lead their firms to success.
