4 Pillars of Accountability – The Foundation of Great Leadership and Great Results
Presented by the Construction Leadership Council (CLC)
September 16th
Virtual Event - 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Speaker – Rick Piraino

All organizations, from families to businesses, need these four things from their leaders; Goals and Expectations, Feedback, Coaching and Consequences.
We will explore how these four activities work together as a proactive leadership model as well as one that can help leaders diagnose what their next step is in managing employee performance.

Goals and Expectations

  • Easy to say but hard to do well
  • Clarity on the front end drives great results on the back
  • Explore the pitfalls leaders make that they think will ensure understanding but don’t
  • Learn the simple, fool proof method to ensure alignment and understanding on the front end

Feedback

  • Learn the power of positive recognition to create improved performance and motivated workers
  • Learn how to give feedback when someone isn’t doing well so that they can hear easier, encourage positive change and feel good about it at the end

Coaching

  • Coaching is the next step in the 4 Pillars when the first two haven’t worked
  • Learn what constitutes good coaching and why most leaders don’t do this well
  • Learn how to listen well and create the questions that support engagement and desired outcomes

Consequences

  • Consequences are natural and beneficial in shaping behaviors that drive success
  • Learn how they are different than punishment
  • Learn how to administer them and keep the worker on your side
  • Learn how they play a critical role in individual and company success

Intended audience: Junior Executives; Project Managers; and Superintendents.

The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) defines a mobile elevated work platform as “a machine/device intended for moving persons, tools and material to working positions,” and consisting of a work platform with controls and an extending structure mounted on a mobile chassis. ANSI updated their A92 standards with new safe use, training and design requirements for MEWPs.

Dan Burazin, AGC of Greater Milwaukee


In addition to qualified signalpersons and certified operators, the new OSHA crane standard requires employees who perform rigging operations to be “qualified.”  This course has been developed by the Crosby Group to assist employers in qualifying their personnel as “Qualified Riggers” as required in the new crane standards.  The standard also requires an experience component which is not provided in this course. Note: This course is four hours in length.  To receive a card verifying their attendance in this class, attendees must be present the entire four hours.

Corporate GC/CM - $35, Associate - $50, *CBA’s - $60, Non-Affiliated IAP - $100
Dan Burazin, AGC of Greater Milwaukee

Today’s challenging economic climate is not the time to back off on safety, but instead to charge ahead with communicating the importance of an accident-free workplace.  Establishing safety objectives and defining responsibilities has never been as critical as it is today.  Holding people accountable for their actions and evaluating their performance can have a big impact on the bottom line.  At one organization, the average cost of a shoulder injury was $50,000, a back injury was $35,000, a knee injury was $30,000 and a hand injury was approximately $20,000.  Learn how to prevent these losses and protect your bottom line!

Successfully Handling an OSHA Inspection
Novemer 18th
4:30 pm to 6:30 pm
Corporate GC/CM - $35, Associate - $50, *CBA’s - $60, Non-Affiliated IAP - $100
Dan Burazin, AGC of Greater Milwaukee

Employers do have rights during the inspection process, but you must be aware of what they are if you hope to exercise them.  As OSHA continues to change the way it does business, it’s more likely your jobsite will be inspected.  The more you know about handling an OSHA inspection, the more likely your experience will be less painful and costly.  This course will help you find out what you might be doing that catches the eye of the trained OSHA inspector and how to successfully navigate your way through the inspection process.

Intended Audience: This course is designed for anyone who works on jobsites and is especially beneficial to field supervisors and their crews.

The Interview: Mark Kessenich
Alex Zank - BizTimes

Mark Kessenich

Mark Kessenich in June took over as the head of AGC of Greater Milwaukee, a trade group serving more than 300 employers, including 21 of the largest contractors, in the region. He joined AGC from Wisconsin Regional Training Partnership’s Big Step program, where he worked to recruit and train skilled workers. Kessenich has taken the helm of AGC at a time when the construction industry is dealing with uncertainty stemming from the COVID-19 pandemic. Kessenich recently spoke with BizTimes reporter Alex Zank about COVID-19, workforce development and D&I in the construction industry.

What are you excited about most in this new role?

“I’m really excited because I think AGC and its members are going to have a great impact on shaping the future of our city and our region, and it’s great to be in a position to lead that in that way.”

 

How does your workforce development background influence your role now?

“I think you’re going to see more out of AGC around youth programming and how we partner with the high schools, and how we start looking at internships and youth apprenticeship in a way that provides greater access for folks. Because while we’re talking a lot about skilled trades, we’re also talking about how we’re going to get more engineers, more architects and project managers. We have some relationships that we’ve established with (the Milwaukee School of Engineering), Marquette, UW-Milwaukee, but all this hinges on...Read full article here.

AGC URGENT ACTION ALERT
 
Multiemployer Pensions: Support Composite Plan Adoption

The nation’s multiemployer pension plan system is facing a crisis. Over 100 plans and a million participants’ retirement security are in jeopardy.

Various measures have been proposed to address the severe underfunding of these plans and the federal agency serving as their financial backstop: the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation. However, one pension reform policy that should be enacted immediately is the authorization of composite plans.

A composite plan is a hybrid between a traditional defined contribution and a defined benefit plan. Composite plan legislation would be beneficial to the construction industry because:

  • The plan design would protect retirement savings from market downturns or other unforeseen circumstances;
  • These plans provide lifetime income to participants and give employers certainty as to how much they must contribute to the plans; and
  • The plan design is tried, true, and trusted. In fact, a similar, successful model is utilized in Canada.

Taking action is easy! Simply submit the pre-written message and tweet as is to your members of Congress or customize it with personal information on how this issue impacts you and your company.
