NWA Senior Leader Bootcamp


After conducting several years of Project Manager and Field Leader Training Programs, ABC Arkansas and FMI have partnered together to provide this new program specifically designed for the senior leader.  


“Every business leader looks like a genius when the tide is high, but when the tide goes back out, we get to see who was skinny dipping…”


Leading a successful construction business takes more than a little luck to thrive. Regardless of what is happening in the market, top leaders must strive for continual improvement in all aspects of their business. A strong balance sheet and profitability require hyper focus on such things as operational excellence, talent cultivation/development and savviness in all things business. Strategic thinking is something that each business leader must commit themselves to each day to create a successful platform for the long-term. Aspiring leaders also must think about how they transition from the day-to-day tactical approach to a longer range mindset. Ultimately, this program will help equip all leaders with the necessary skills to achieve better results. 


Who Should Attend: 

President, CEO, CFO, COO, Business Unit Leaders, Senior PM, General Superintendent
