“The biggest challenge facing A/E firms today is development of our future leaders. We had several of our emerging leaders attend the ACEC Leadership Development program and the feedback I received was extremely positive. In particular, it helped them gain a broader perspective on the business aspects of consulting and we are already realizing the return on this investment in their leadership development.”  --Larry Fox, PE, COO, DOWL

This series is ideal for project managers, designers and engineers who are:
  • Interested in a leadership track in their career
  • Shifting their focus from projects to organizational and financial goals of the firm
  • Challenged by competing priorities
  • Being asked to take on more responsibilities with the same resources
  • New to managing multiple or complex projects
  • New to managing people and teams

  • ACEC members - $990
  • Non-members - $1,690

The series helped me by providing insightful methods, processes, practices and ways of thinking to continue to develop as a leader. Additionally, learning personality types and how to build a successful team with a well-rounded balance of different personality types was very insightful. I also gained knowledge about the Oregon political landscape, lobbying, how to have a voice, and the state legislature.”  -- Craig Heimbucher, PE, Associate Engineer, Terraphase Engineering
The ‘Enhancing Leadership Versatility and Personal Effectiveness’ session has helped me as I work with different team members. I have a new appreciation for different personalities and understand how they each can contribute to a positive project outcome.”  --Jared Trowbridge, PE, Project Manager, DOWL
