Fundamentals of Crew Leadership

$285 – $407

Fundamentals of Crew Leadership

Thursday, November 8, 2018  / 12:00 pm – 4:00 pm

& Friday, November 9, 2018 / 7:30 am – 4:00 pm


When a crew is formed to tackle a particular job, one person is appointed the Leader. How many of your field personnel are ready for the next step but don’t have the skills to run a small crew of field employees? This course will equip your future “Face of the Field” with the critical skills needed to successfully communicate with and lead a crew of craftspeople!

The discussion between students and facilitator provided beneficial insight into different leadership styles and approaches to challenges.  The material provided a structured approach to leadership in construction. – Dylan Seyler, S & S Structures, Inc.

This course benefitted me because I learned a lot, including how to plan and schedule jobs, how to plan things out so you can get your work done faster and make more profit, how to deal with other contractors on the job site and how to set a good example on everything you do on the jobsite. –  Ken Mowery, Paul Risk Construction
