MCA-Omaha Koontz Seminar: Session 2


John Koontz will be delivering 6 days of valuable training to project manager and foremen teams between 2018 and 2020.  The first session was on April 3rd and the September 11th course will round out 2018.  

Have a brand new project manager?  How about a foreman with a few years under his belt?  What about a seasoned project manager that could use a new spark to ignite some energy and confidence into their leadership role? SEND THEM!  This series of 6 courses will be stand-alone in nature, but we suggest for seminar attendees to dive into all 6 days to get the ultimate Koontz training experience.


Morning Session:  High Impact Communication Skills

• 7:30 – 11:30 AM

When communication problems develop, relationships usually weaken, misunderstandings occur, and project failure is imminent.  Communication is always difficult on a construction project and the best leaders know that it’s an issue which requires their constant attention, evaluation, and improvement.  This session will cover vital communication topics such as: effective listening, questioning, public speaking and presentation, basic written communication, clear explanation and understanding, and accepting the burden of communication.


Afternoon Session:  Critical Leadership Skills for Project Leaders

• 12:30 – 4:30 PM

To have successful projects, a project leader must develop critical leadership skills.  This session will provide an understanding of these skills and include topics such as: defining and dispelling the myths of leadership, understanding the differences between leadership and management, Maxwell’s irrefutable laws of leadership, the relationship between leadership and motivation, creating an atmosphere of trust, learning leadership abilities and the relationship to personal effectiveness and accomplishment.
