New Leaders and Managers

We often promote associates to positions they are not trained for, thereby setting them and the company up for failure, or at the very least a painful and extended learning process. Training new Leaders and Managers to identify and address the new issues they will be facing is essential to their success. Training will provide the knowledge, experience will provide the wisdom, and practice will lead to greater leadership and management experiences. This 1-day course is packed full and designed for the newly promoted or future leader in our companies. It is also suitable for junior leaders and managers who have not been formally exposed to management styles and philosophies.

Project Managers in electrical construction and low voltage construction. Good project management is good project management…only the size, scale and examples of projects change. At the end of the day, we are managing projects…whether it’s a commercial official building with a 2000A service, or whether it’s a low voltage project with lots of drops, or a systems integration project on the plant floor, we’re managing dollars, hours, productivity, quality, safety…and the customer, be it the end-user plant manager, or the general contractor. The job is the same, just the examples change. This program is intended to be an intensive and comprehensive approach to gaining, increasing and/or refining skills critical to executing the duties of a project manager.
