About the Event

Welcome SWE and SMACNA Women In Construction Members for our first joint event!

Leadership in the New World of Work

With ongoing political unrest, technological disruption, global pandemic, and the rise of an increasingly diverse and multigenerational workforce, a new kind of leadership is required for success. Today’s leaders must shift from fostering hierarchical, product-focused, profit-driven, office-based cultures to creating democratic, people-focused, people-driven cultures that empower teams across a myriad of locations. To draw the best talent to your team, and help them thrive in a hybrid work environment, you need to master Modern Leadership skills. We will focus on the six competencies of Modern Leaders, we call the HEARTI(TM) Leadership model: humility, empathy, accountability, resiliency, transparency, and inclusion. Applying these skills will help you and your team succeed in the new world of work.
