The CIOB has launched a unique new management course for young construction professionals. Coach for Results, created by CIOB Fellow Dave Stitt, is delivered via the CIOB Academy.

The flexible 10-week course teaches how to incorporate coaching techniques into management style – enabling people in a leadership role (or heading for one) to become more effective managers and to guide teams to better results.

“I believe the command-and-control model, in which I was steeped as a young project manager, increases stress, stifles initiative and erodes engagement, with negative consequences for people and productivity,” says Stitt.
