Event Description
Many great trades people take a foreman position and fail. Not for lack of skills or drive but simply for lack of guidance on how to be a great foreman. This 1-day course gives participants the fundamentals of field leadership, organization, crew morale, efficiency, and productivity.
 
Issues covered:
  • Understanding why and how many foremen fail
  • How the foreman’s role has changed
  • Dealing with workplace conflict without being a jerk
  • Learning how to anticipate production and jobsite issues
  • Understanding general and subcontractor dynamics
  • Understanding your role as a leader
  • Understand how you play a major role in increasing jobsite productivity
Instructor: Paul Simpson is a Gold Seal certified superintendent with over 15 years of trade experience. He holds a Red Seal for Plumbing and Pipefitting and has his Gasfitting certification as well. He is currently teaching the piping trades at Thompson Rivers University.
