Ecobuild Leadership Track Provides Educational Forum for Construction Executives

RCG Productions, LLC, producer of Ecobuild America, Ecobuild Federal and AEC-Science and Technology (AEC-ST), has launched a construction industry leadership program designed specifically for CEOs and Presidents.

Exton, PA (PRWEB) April 15, 2005 -- RCG Productions, LLC, producer of Ecobuild America, Ecobuild Federal and AEC-Science and Technology (AEC-ST), has launched a construction industry leadership program designed specifically for CEOs and Presidents.

The Ecobuild Leadership Track is managed by Construction Peer Group Corporation (CPGC) and includes Ecobuild Conference networking events and off-site meetings. The ongoing program helps “C” level executives and Presidents increase leadership skills and improve bottom-line profitability. It is designed around the concept of non-competing companies sharing best practices in a peer group environment.

In announcing the new Ecobuild event, George Borkovich, a principal in RCG, said: “For a long time we have looked at ways we can provide new dimension to leadership training. The Leadership Track we have developed provides a real opportunity for CEOs and Presidents to participate in a program that pumps new ideas and insights into their businesses that can accelerate their learning curve to make them competitive. This all occurs in an environment that focuses on the needs of the expanding market for green building and sustainable design.”

Construction Peer Group Corporation (CPGC) manages the Ecobuild Leadership Track and has been instrumental in developing both the onsite and offsite programs. Ron McKenzie, CEO and President of CPGC, has more then 30 years of experience in the construction industry. Ron notes: “The charter of the Ecobuild Leadership Track is to provide a new education program in a peer group setting where leaders can work through major issues affecting their businesses.”

Richard Bright is the co-founder of CPGC and was instrumental in developing the Ecobuild Leadership Track Program that gives Ecobuild its leadership edge. Richard explains: “The primary thread of success of many leaders is the ability to share and network with others to shorten their learning curve when addressing a multitude of issues such as business growth. The Three Track Program we have developed for Ecobuild provides a unique opportunity for everyone to experience the benefits of the peer group processes.”

The core of the Ecobuild program includes:

Track One: Conference Leadership Networking – Designed around mini-peer groups where ideas can be exchanged and documented for everyone that participates. .

Track Two: Leadership Coaching – An additional option is for those executives who want to start experiencing the benefits of the peer group phenomena.

Track Three: Leadership Peer Group – A traditional peer group where 8 to 12 executives get together three-to-four times in a year to share best practices and work through a predefined curriculum.

Borkovich adds: “The 7-Step Core Curriculum TM that Ron and Richard have developed as a part of the program makes this win-win situation for everyone. The Curriculum takes a company through strategic planning, business planning, marketing planning and financial planning as part of the peer group process. No longer will the construction executive be faced with flying into a meeting, which is not organized or facilitated. The meetings have a core content specifically designed for CEO’s and Presidents to look at their businesses from a different vantage point. It provides input from other like-minded companies in the sharing of best practices and developing a framework for making key strategic and financial decisions. This is very unique compared to any learning program offered in the construction industry, because it has an underlying curriculum that guarantees success by addressing key issues as they arise.”

The Ecobuild America show and conference premieres June 20-23, 2005 at Disney's Coronado Springs Resort and Convention Center in Orlando, Florida. Focused on the needs of the expanding green building market. Ecobuild America combines sustainable building techniques with the technology that supports the entire process from concept, through design, construction and long-term operation.
