Create a Purpose-Driven Culture

If you think the subject of culture is touchy-feely fluff, think again. A carefully crafted company culture can make or break what you do. Learn how to evaluate your organization’s culture and identify how to create a new culture that speaks to the next generation of leaders.   

Speaker Jill Belconis works with growth-minded CEOs who want to scale their companies, but realize what got them “here”, won’t get them “there”.  As a Scaling Up Rockefeller Habits Certified Business Coach, Jill combines all these tools with her CEO leadership experience to move the company forward. She facilitates meetings with executive teams to develop strategic plans, instills proven accountability methods for executing on the plans, and attains results by gaining alignment throughout the entire organization.

The Economy: What's Next

The construction industry has experienced significant growth over the past decade, with consistently high backlogs and continued investment in the commercial sector. However, worrying signs are out there: a chronic skilled labor shortage, tariffs on steel and other building materials, and a looming election that could shift the balance of power nationwide. Are these indicators of a looming recession, or merely blips on the economy’s long-term growth curve? Gain critical insight into the state of the economy now and, more importantly, how to prepare for in the coming year.
