Are you feeling the pressure in the construction industry, as demand soars but resources seem to dwindle? The unprecedented impact of Brexit, Covid-19, and a skills shortage are pressing down on the industry. The productivity challenge is immense, affecting quality, efficiency, and those razor-thin profit margins. As if that’s not enough, there’s the pressing urgency of the climate crisis, a responsibility that all companies, no matter their size, must shoulder. Not to mention, the constant strive for improved physical safety and mental well-being. The construction industry is under permanent scrutiny and can be its own worst critic, fuelled by the genuine desire to make significant improvements. But it’s a daunting task, and sometimes, you just need that extra power-up!
We understand the frustration of seeing countless papers highlighting the need for change, but with little action following. The industry seems highly fragmented, stifling innovation and learning. Plenty of networking groups and industry think tanks exist, but how many of them have the drive to deliver the rapid change the industry desperately needs? You’re ready for a change, a real shift in thinking, a power-up that does more than just provide lip service.
Introducing the Construction Leaders Power Up. This isn’t just a meeting at a nice hotel or in the recognised surroundings of a construction site. We’re teleporting leaders like you into high-performing manufacturing facilities that have tackled and conquered challenges similar to those you’re facing. It’s an opportunity to break free from the confines of your industry and gain new perspectives, a chance to challenge your thinking and smash cognitive fixedness.
We’ve designed these Power Ups to spark imagination and support a rapid performance transformation by creating a one-off network centred around burning industry challenges. You’ll be part of targeted learning experiences, engaging in hands-on discussions that offer genuine insights. You’ll unlock opportunities to immediately enhance construction performance.
