Santa Barbara, CA (PRWEB) October 13, 2008
Construction business and life coach Clay S. Nelson will give stone industry professionals a fresh perspective on leadership and team building when he presents two new programs at the upcoming StonExpo 2008 trade show and conference in Las Vegas, NV, on October 16, 2008.
Leaders Growing Leaders
Growth in many companies over the past several years has happened at a very fast rate, requiring teams to grow at the same if not faster rate. When we grow at this pace much of our team's training consists of being thrown into the fire and doing what they are told to do, when they are told to do it. However, in more challenging times, we can't afford to rely on having our company's direction, motivation, and profitability be sustained by a team of followers. We need teams of leaders and this program will help construction business owners grow their teams into the leaders they are capable of being.
Team Building: Don't Just Survive... Thrive!
When times are tough, more often than not, we retreat into the feeling of "Only I Can Do It". Yet, if any of us could get to where we are going without a team, we would be there already.
"Making it through rough market conditions isn't about tightening our grip and controlling everything within our grasp," Nelson explains. "As a matter of fact, not just surviving, but thriving in tough market conditions is about creating and utilizing an unstoppable team, from architects and specifiers to fabricators and installers whose common goals and combined efforts propel us further than we ever dreamed possible on our own!"
This program teaches five keys to building a cohesive and unstoppable team that supports stone industry business owners and their companies as they strive to not just survive, but to thrive in today's construction and remodeling market conditions.
After 30 years of corporate leadership, including 14 years as a nail-belt wearing professional himself, Clay Nelson understands the key elements that make a construction business successful. Combining this understanding with his instinctive ability to uncover the growth potential within companies, Clay helps business owners transform challenges into opportunities.
