Developing Leaders and Growing Organisations.
The construction and engineering sectors are ripe for disruption, and the successful organisations will be those that develop their people to navigate through the complex challenges ahead.
During the last boom, companies worked towards increasing revenue turnover, gaining more operational efficiencies and maximising profits, but rarely developed the leaders within to deal with the inevitable downturn. Growth pains were common, with portfolios lacking diversity and agility to mitigate against unforeseen challenges.
Those that did invest in their leadership team during the boom found themselves in an advantageous position when agility, flexibility and innovation were required to not only survive, but thrive in the new landscape.
Now IMI (Irish Management Institute), in partnership with the Construction Industry Federation, has developed the Leadership Development Programme for Construction and Engineering to help companies develop their leaders to take advantage of the upturn but also recognise, and deal with, the challenges, opportunities and disruption ahead.
The programme will run over 12 months, with 6 x 2-day modules on subjects such as Strategy, Operational Excellence, Client Value, Leadership, High Performance Teams and Leading Business Transformation. It will be particularly valuable for preparing managers transitioning into senior leadership positions.
Specifically designed for the construction and engineering related service sectors, participants will hear faculty working in industry, subject-matter experts and be supported by coaching elements designed to promote individual development.
The programme is tailored to each individual and their company, requiring them to produce a leadership action plan for themselves and a complete assessment of their organisation’s capability. These diagnostics will be used to direct the outcomes of the programme, creating clear return on investment for the sponsoring company.
For those people committed to growing their organisations, this programme will give participants the tools and strategies to make that a reality, developing them as future-fit leaders ready to guide their companies through the peaks and troughs of the next decade.
