The President’s Job Description

October 5, 2015 @ 7:00 am - 12:00 pm

Did you wake up one day and realize that your company had gotten far bigger than you ever imagined? There were more bills to pay, staff to keep busy and less time for you to spend on what you’d always done best – your trade. This evolution is the rule far more than the exception as many small business owners get propelled into managing a workforce rather than working alongside them as their business grows.

This workshop is intended for presidents/CEOs who seek to clarify that being bigger does not equal just doing more; but it does mean doing things differently. Leading a team of senior managers and a growing business is a very different job than managing a project. The problem is that few presidents learn how to capitalize on these differences other than through trial-and-error resulting in some expensive learning!

This workshop will focus determining what the key priorities are for a president as well as developing a plan to get these in place.

The workshop will cover:

  • The difference between management and leadership and how it applies in a contractor / construction business
  • The role of the President & CEO
  • The role of senior managers
  • Best practice tips to move out of the jobsite and into the office

Participants will improve their understanding of what the most successful CEOs, Presidents and Managers spend their time on and practical techniques to extract themselves from the day to day operations and move into this top level role full time.
