Strategic Leadership Programme in Construction (Preparation for Fellowship FCIOB) – Online Classroom
To be an effective leader in the construction industry, you need to be able to lead people, lead your organisation, and demonstrate the ability to drive the sector forward. These are the competencies that are fundamental to effective and successful companies, and form the basis of assessment for those looking to become a Fellow of the CIOB.
In recognition of the importance of these skills, to assist leaders to develop their core abilities, and to prepare those wishing to apply for Fellowship, the CIOB is proud to offer a course on Strategic Leadership in Construction.
The course focuses on two perspectives:
- Leading and influencing construction organisations.
- Leading and influencing people – ensuring, in particular, that the organisation operates with integrity and responsibility.
From a sectoral and organisational perspective, business tools and models will be presented, helping you to identify, evaluate and understand the key business drivers impacting on the construction sector and the strategies required to meet key challenges. From a people perspective, effective leadership considers how individuals can shape and influence organisational thinking and in particular ensure a safe, fair, ethical, respectful and responsible business.
At the end of the programme you will be equipped with skills and behaviours that reflect the highest level of professional competence.
The programme will be delivered over six days online.
