This series of courses is designed to refine essential leadership skills needed by project managers, project coordinators and field supervision.

The modern construction project requires project managers, coordinators and site leadership to interface with more stakeholders than ever. Today, projects are more complex to deliver, and are being required to be delivered in record time. Combine this pressure with varying interests across the project lifecycle between the design and compliance desires of consultants, desires of owners and owner’s representatives, and ultimately the economics of returning on an investment, and modern project leadership must be able to adapt and balance the interests of all stakeholders to ensure project success. It also means, we have to practice our own leadership skills.
