A/E/C Leadership Bootcamp

Are you doing leadership development all wrong?

Most firms select future leaders from their most successful Project Managers. But, being a successful Project Manager doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll be a successful leader!

What really makes a great leader? More than managing people or projects or finances, great leaders can truly inspire and motivate others to perform at their peak. Whether you believe that great leaders are born or built, every current and future architecture or engineering firm leader can benefit from opportunities to refine their skills and test drive their leadership chops on real-world case studies and hands-on exercises alongside coaches who’ve been there.    

Don’t waste your time and money on generic leadership training.

Leading a team in the A/E/C industry is different. That is because most A/E/C firms are employee-owned by hands-on leaders who wear a lot of hats and need to constantly manage competing priorities. This requires different leadership skills than in more conventional larger and less nimble corporations in other industries. You need to be part visionary, part coach, part cheerleader and a whole lot more.

If you ask some of the best A/E/C firm leaders what put them on a trajectory to be a great leader, they often point to great coaching that really made the difference. It was the coaching that pushed them to learn how to:

  • Craft long-term growth strategies that unleash their high performers
  • Cultivate “pie makers” who can win enough work to keep the firm full
  • Create a culture of employee engagement that makes the firm a talent magnet
  • Get everyone around them to think big and over deliver every time
  • Use leadership strategies that the best-in-class A/E/C firms are using right now

You won’t learn this stuff in a generic leadership seminar. PSMJ's A/E/C Leadership Bootcamp was developed out of a frequent concern voiced by A/E/C firm principals and leaders that they were missing a trusted and proven resource for getting their rising stars ready for the challenges that lie ahead.

Get high-impact leadership skills you can implement on Monday.

Built as an extension of the tactical management skills that come from our popular A/E/C Principals Bootcamp, A/E/C Leadership Bootcamp is different from any other leadership seminar because:

  1. You learn from case studies taken from actual A/E/C firms just like yours.
  2. You work collaboratively with other attendees dealing with the kinds of real-life issues A/E/C firm leaders face every day. No ivory tower theory, just practical techniques that really work.
  3. PSMJ’s facilitators each have 25+ years of experience leading successful A/E/C organizations and consulting with many A/E/C firms.
  4. You get a first-hand look at proprietary and powerful industry-specific leadership tools that PSMJ created with experts at The PeopleMap Company and Harrison Assessments.
  5. You get online access to a library of templates and resources to help you implement what you’ve learned when you return to the office.

Your pathway to high impact leadership starts here.

Don’t miss out on this opportunity to bring out the best in your firm’s current and future leaders…and everyone around them. This intensive two-day program is guaranteed to move the needle at your firm.
