Who Can Attend?

The three-day program is open to supervisory personnel, such as foremen and general foremen, safety managers, project managers, estimators, superintendents, and owners.

Accommodations provided (flight, hotel, food while at the ITC).

This program is designed to give jobsite supervisors the tools to improve the overall jobsite, taking it from good to great!

Program Goal

The UBC’s goal is 70% market share, and this program will provide the necessary tools to maximize individual productivity to achieve this goal.

Leadership is greatest in a collective team. By encouraging equal participation across all levels, a collaborative leader allow solutions to develop from the best ideas of the group, and take a team approach to problem solving.

Encouraging problem solving from all levels allows the uncovering of solutions that may have never seen the light of day, and helps in growing successful businesses that contribute to a sustainable world.

On most job sites, both collaborative leadership and command-and-control leadership will likely be needed to be successful, but because of our industry’s competitive nature, leaders with the skills to lead collaboratively will become a priority.

  • “This was a great experience for our team: Not only did we learn about ourselves and the importance of working in collaboration, but we also experienced the downfall of not working as a team first hand. The information opened our eyes to the many differences between our generations, to have empathy for our employees, and give our employees a chance to think outside of the box. This program brought great value to our company and we recommend this program for all leaders.” — Jeffrey Bonar
