Presenter : David Rabiner, Rabiner Resources - Portland, OR 

Master Builders of Iowa will once again deliver an unprecedented leadership development series for a select group of construction professionals who “get” leadership. David Rabiner of Rabiner Resources (Portland, OR) will lead this workshop series, now in its ninth year. These workshops are not offered individually, but as an integrated series on the topics of communication, customer, collaboration and culture. Participants can come from any area of construction, including marketing; pre-construction; estimating; project management; field production; equipment and fleet management; accounting and finance; human resources; safety; and upper management. We are seeking those individuals who are defining their leading edge as a construction leader.

The series is organized into four interactive learning sessions. Each experience will include pre-session assignments, lessons by David, team exercises and networking time with one another. Complementing The Leadership Experience sessions, David Rabiner is offering, at NO additional cost, private leadership coaching in a confidential setting. Becoming a great construction leader does not boil down to what you know technically, nor is it about who you know. It is about you, your character; your ability to lead yourself and others; your influence in good times and bad; and your individual career journey. Come be part of this experience in a closed setting with others who share your challenges and opportunities!

Fees include all sessions, class materials, one-on-one coaching with instructor and meals where noted. Participants are responsible for travel and overnight accommodations.

Class size is limited to the first 20 registrants and one per company.
