Overview

Building Future Leadership

This program offers attendees a tremendous opportunity to continue their path of success and become more involved as current and future leaders of the construction industry in Iowa. It introduces participants to MBI, while focusing on communication and stepping outside of your comfort zone. The class also takes on a project that will have a positive impact on Iowa’s commercial construction industry.

MB EYE on the Future is the only program that MBI offers that has an application process, which requires an employer recommendation and selection procedure. Participants are nominated by their company’s executive management and complete an application for consideration in the program. Careful consideration of all nominations and applications is then made by a selection committee.

If a company is looking to grow great, enthusiastic and confident leaders, MB EYE on the Future is a ‘must’ class to have. The class will do wonders for an employee’s confidence. Ken does an excellent job of developing people into confident employees with his teaching of this class. It is worth the time and money for the future of your company to send employees through this class. - Kevin Larsen, Woodruff Construction, LLC

A main component of the MB EYE on the Future program is the ‘The Leaders Course’® presented by Ken Bradford of Dallas, Texas. Ken works with the class the first five months of the program, boosting their confidence, communication and leadership skills, as well as leading each participant to become a more effective and charismatic leader. Ken’s sessions are not about taking notes, listening to lectures or watching lengthy slide presentations. Ken focuses on learning by doing, by participating, taking risks, and applying the materials he teaches on a daily basis.

Nominations for the 2019-2020 class are now closed. Please contact Micah Loveless at mloveless@mbi.build with any questions.

The Leadership Experience

  • Overview
  • Details
  • Roster

Overview

The Leadership Experience is a leadership training program that addresses the critical areas of communication, collaboration, culture and customer. These four areas are critical in all levels of leadership and attendees are challenged to take the learning of previous leadership classes to the next, higher level. Becoming an effective leader requires an understanding of people, personalities, attitudes, goals and more. The Leadership Experience stresses to attendees that the most important person they will ever lead is themselves.

The MBI Leadership Experience was a superb course of self- reflection and deeper learning.  Rather than starting at square one, the MBI Leadership Experience took advantage of the prior leadership experience of the attendees. The result was an effective series which not only challenged the attendees to utilize what they likely already knew, but also to reconsider leadership principles from a different view. The interaction between peers was invaluable as a learning tool, facilitating the ability to focus on items that mean the most to our industry, and gain familiarity with each other in a non- competitive environment. David Rabiner challenged the group to be real. At all times, he remained connected with us. The humility and group awareness David demonstrated kept the class in learning mode, not lecture mode. More specifically, David spoke with us, not at us. I told David on our last evening that he really drove home learning in a way that the construction industry could relate to, but in hindsight, I can't think of anyone who wouldn't want to learn in that way. -Dan Kartman, Seedorff Masonry

In addition to the classroom training, attendees receive one-on-one executive leadership coaching from our facilitator. Becoming a great construction leader does not boil down to what you know technically, nor is it about who you know. It is about you, your character; your ability to lead yourself and others; your influence in good times and bad; and your individual career journey. This program changes individuals on multiple levels as leaders in their company, home and community.

Foundations of a Field Leader

Overview

Laying the Groundwork for Effective Field Leadership

This field leadership development program is designed to provide attendees with a host of tools and information to help them excel as leaders in the areas of leadership, risk management, communication, and personal effectiveness. Leading a team, crew, or group of individuals in a commercial construction project environment takes an exceptional person with the right skill set and personality, along with construction knowledge and awareness. Leaders in the field must be able to manage time, equipment, materials, and most importantly, people. This program will provide the tools and help develop the skills of attendees in becoming successful leaders.

As a new project superintendent, I have found the classes for Foundations of a Field Leader very helpful in my day to day operations on the job. With a whole day on communication, which I feel is key on any job, it was a very instructional course. For contractors who feel they have an up and coming lead person, I highly recommend this course before they are in that position. - Richard Firmstone, Neumann Brothers, Inc.

The audience for this program are individuals who show promise as a potential field leader, or those who are currently in a leadership role and would like to improve in the areas of leadership, risk management, communication and personal skills, such as time management, prioritizing, and goal setting.

Overview

An Interactive Program That Focuses on the Project Team

Success of a construction team, project or company often boils down to a few key components that, if carefully combined, can lead to great accomplishments where everybody wins. Employees, companies and customers can all win with the proper combination of teamwork, leadership, communication, accountability, personal responsibility, budgeting and quality control on every project, every day. A large portion of the responsibility for these areas falls on the project’s leadership team of project managers and project supervisors. This integrative leadership program will challenge members of the project team to understand project budgets, elevate individual and team performance, understand customer dynamics, and even have a little bit of fun in the process. This is an outstanding opportunity to put members of your project team in a teamwork atmosphere of learning and professional growth.

“A great all-around learning experience. My favorite part was all the presenters did a great job of keeping it interesting and informal.” - Len Reid, Hy-Vee Construction, LC

Items addressed in this program are viewed from the perspective of the project manager and the project supervisor to assure a high level of understanding. This exciting series combines the experiences and knowledge of project managers, project supervisors and presenters, focusing on team building workshops to address common construction roadblocks to effectiveness.

Overview

Become a Lean Construction Champion

Everyone related to the construction process has the incentive to get the project done faster and at a lower cost - from the project owners who want to see tangible results for their investment to the contractors and designers who want to do their job well and move on to the next project. Lean Construction is based on the holistic pursuit of continuous improvements aimed at minimizing costs and maximizing value on a construction project: planning, design, construction, activation, operations, maintenance, salvaging, and recycling.

The AGC Lean Construction Education Program (LCEP) is the curriculum available to help you reach these goals. The LCEP consists of seven units that instruct all aspects of Lean, allowing practitioners to benefit from these principles. Construction professionals at all experience levels will learn the building blocks necessary to transform their projects and companies into a Lean operating system. In addition, this course provides tools to help participants recognize sources of variation on their own projects, examine variation’s effect on operations, and mitigate the effects of variation in their every-day work.

To help contractors develop the knowledge needed to build lean, Master Builders of Iowa is offering the Associated General Contractors of America Lean Construction Education Program.

Following successful completion of the entire 7 unit program, attendees are eligible to sit for the AGC of America CM-Lean exam at Master Builders of Iowa in Des Moines.

The AGC Certificate of Management-Lean Construction (CM-Lean) is an assessment-based certificate credential that denotes knowledge and understanding of concepts related to lean adoption, practice and process transformation outlined in AGC’s Lean Construction Education Program (LCEP).  Successful candidates will carry the CM-Lean designation.

"Before we ran on EOS®, it was complete chaos! Or at least that is how it felt to me… 'fires' everywhere, and we lacked organizational clarity and accountability. I was clearly the one to blame….We began our EOS® Journey in the fall of 2016 and today the business is 'calmer', our employees have clarity, they understand the vision and their contribution to our core purpose, which is to build relationships. EOS® has made me a better leader and I am surrounded by people with the same core values; it is awesome to work with people that 'get it'! Our customers are happier too!" - Steve Hauschilt, President, Graham Construction Company, Des Moines
