Coach for Results is a course designed for young construction professionals to focus on the people side of the industry. The traditional focus on technical aspects has been a concern for many in the industry. The course aims to challenge the “command-and-control” management style that demotivates people and suppresses initiative and innovation. Instead, the course equips participants with coaching skills to empower their colleagues, leading to more proactive and strategic responses to emerging issues.

As a result, companies can expect smoother business performance, a more engaged workforce. The course draws on the trainers’ 45 years of experience in the construction industry and is designed to help young professionals build strong relationships and networks while maintaining a positive work environment.


The course consists of two, stimulating five minute videos released each week over 10 weeks, which set out the essentials of a coaching approach. Participants can view the videos in their own time and start using the coaching tools right away.

Each week has an interesting in-work assignment allowing participants to practice what they are learning, and participants share their findings with written feedback that allows them to network and learn from each other.

New ideas for tough times

The theme of this year's annual conference is balancing conservation needs against rising costs. It is ideal for professionals involved in historic or traditional buildings as well as homeowners who are embarking on their own project.
