I had the opportunity to hear you 10 years ago as a field engineer. Your message was loud and clear then. The seed you planted 10 years ago helped me be growth minded. I am so proud to be in the position to provide your engagement to a new corps of construction Leaders.
Thank you for your amazing presentation at the ypo CIN conference yesterday. I was blown away by what you said. Your energy, passion, wisdom and insight was spot on. I appreciated how you set the podium on the floor – not “above “ us. You have the power to engage the group completely and your message was simple and perfect.
I want to thank you for today’s session. I met you as a union apprentice operator in MI about 17 years ago. It was the Survival of the Fittest seminar. That helped shape my career, and now I am able to utilize your seminars within the ranks of my company. We will be rolling out more of your resources to as many as we can. Thanks again!
Mark’s presentation was fantastic and aligns very well with what we are working toward. I most impressed by the response from the audience (hardened PROFESSIONAL construction workers) with their level of engagement with Mark. They seemed to take it very well and that was the critical factor for me. Very well done and worth the time.
We just watched a couple of videos and they are awesome! What a great program, so simple yet packed with information!
These short videos along with the Five Minute Foreman book have been a great help to CSCRCs foreman meetings. The foremen are no longer just foremen. Mark’s coaching videos helped them understand that they actually manage millions of dollars for their companies when building a project, and now they think of themselves as Professional Construction Leaders. I’m looking forward to utilizing more of the videos and books at the meetings. Education and empowerment is the key to success.
I think the Professional Construction Leadership training is excellent. Just long enough and focused on a simple and very important concept.
Mark Breslin’s The Professional Construction Leader Video Series works! It works, because Mark is real. His blatantly honest family history and experience have wrapped him into who he is today. No bias, no bullshit. He speaks with clarity, sincerity, and conviction. The messages are simple, clear and strong. To do this in two minute messages is perfect for our very busy people. Thanks Mark!
The Professional Construction Leader coaching videos have been instrumental to the success of our Foreman meetings. We watch videos and then use the provided discussion questions. We talk about real experiences on the job site that were related to a video. One example is one of our members drove up to the job site, told us he really did look in his rear-view mirror and said, “I run millions of dollars’ worth of work, I am a professional.” He was recently promoted to Assistant Superintendent.
I have been in the trade for 25 years and have always thought that my way was the right way because I always got the job done on time and not taking anyone else’s thoughts or feelings into consideration because they weren’t the ones signing my pay check. Let me say this right now. I was so Wrong! There are better ways to do things and the field leader training helped me professionally and personally in ways I can’t express with words. I believe that it has made me all around a better person and oh by the way, I will always see myself as a leader for the rest of my life. Thanks again for seeing in me what I didn’t see in myself.
I had a number of individuals reach out to me after the event to express how much the day changed their view on leadership and energized them to take greater responsibility for leading at home and work. You did a wonderful job and made a significant impact on the lives of leaders at Mid-Ohio. Thank you!
He was spot on with everything he touched and made a huge impact in how I’m going to live my life at home and at work. Thank you so much Mark.
I just want to start with how thankful I am that I was able to attend the field leader day. The impact so far has been amazing in my day to day activities at work as well as at home. My approach towards my coworkers on the job has changed, and I see improvements on work and have more respect from them. I have less stress because I have stepped back on some task and let them figure it out while I can concentrate on the next step. It has also impacted the actions towards my family and understanding more now that I am the leader of my household and the mentor towards my children and my wife. I feel my family has had a dramatic difference on how they look at me, and it has improved our relationships.
I never would have thought that the field leader day would have this much of an impact on my life. Once again thank you and I look forward to the videos every other week.
The one thing that I have been working on is getting away from being a “wagon wheel” manager. I always thought that the leader was supposed to be the guy everyone went to, but after listening to Mark I realized that I was making my job harder than it needed to be. I have been asking my guys what they think should be done when they bring me a problem, and as Mark said they are right 80% of the time. I know that it working because I am getting fewer calls asking what to do and more calls informing me of what has been done. This is allowing me more time to work on other areas of leadership.
Mark’s talk was terrific and absolutely one of the highlights of our meeting. His message was so timely and on point for our group. We were thrilled to have him. I’m sure a lot of PLCA members will be in touch for their own company events!
Mark brings an understanding of business and an energy that reaches our people top to bottom. He has an incredibly compelling no-nonsense method of delivering his message.
