Before starting the AGC Leadership Program, I was skeptical of how effective the course could be. I was surprised to learn that the challenges presented in this course were very hands on. One of the best takeaways from this course was how to communicate better with people who have very different personalities. I feel the AGC leadership module was an effective course in helping me become a better leader, and it helped me create connections with other professionals in our industry that I’m sure I will work with in the future.

The AGC Breakthrough Training was a fantastic experience that broadened and deepened my understanding of what it means to be an effective communicator and leader. It also offered me the opportunity to create relationships with other professionals that contribute to the construction industry. I would highly recommend this course to anyone who is prepared to get comfortable being uncomfortable!

We learned your body language is just as powerful as the words you speak. We learned being a leader is knowing when to lead your team but also knowing to rely on your team. If you are in a leadership role, or if you are looking to become a leader, if you need to build your team, or if you need to learn how to be part of a team—this class is for you!

I learned a lot from the AGC Leadership class. In our industry we work with all types of people and personalities. One of the biggest take-aways that I learned was to understand your audience. This will allow you to know how to communicate with them to create successful teams and partnerships.
