I have been given the opportunity to serve as the chairperson of the Future Leaders. I have been a part of the Future Leaders for two years, and in those two years I have seen the committee grow and develop from a thought to an action. Over the next year, we plan to continue our progress and grow the Future Leaders network.
Leadership is a trait that can be developed and a trait that should be encouraged by companies. Promoting leadership and opportunities will not only help grow your firm, but retain your existing employees. The current economy, specifically within the construction industry, is strong. In a strong economy, employees are often searching for the next best thing in terms of growth and leadership. We can easily retain our ABC member companies’ next generation of leaders through encouragement and training.
The ABC MA Future Leaders is comprised of men and women who understand the importance of educating and driving ABC member companies “youth.” Through our networking events and guest speakers we will engage the newest generation in the industry and assist in starting the process to gain leadership skills and prepare them to take the role of an industry leader.
We will strive to gain the support and collaboration of industry leaders within the ABC member network. ABC member leaders know better than anyone the importance of molding the future of their company. We need to start educating that generation early to build successful firms.
We have several networking events planned for the remainder of the year, and encourage current leaders to attend alongside their company’s future leaders and encourage more of their employees to attend. Feedback and suggestions are what will make our committee better. We strive to educate and develop the “young “minds of ABC member companies.
I am grateful to sit as the chairperson of such an inspirational group. I look forward to working with the next generation of ABC member leaders.
