The second of three leadership programs hosted by the CLC this year, Managing Up is being led by Dale Carnegie.
No matter how intelligent and well-informed leaders are in organizations, it is impossible for them to always see the big picture in each situation. We find ourselves wanting to communicate our ideas and suggestions in a way that will improve the overall leadership of the organization, but we are not in a leadership role. In this program we examine ways that we still can influence the efficiency and effectiveness of our work teams, even if we are not the ones giving all the orders. We commit to ways that we can be more flexible in responding to others. We explore ways of managing our priorities and expectations, and at the same time accomplishing our goals and the goals of our manager.
At the completion of this program, participants will be able to:
Plan the way we communicate with managers and colleagues
June 8, 2017 - 11:30am - PennFirst: The IPD Team that Tackles Urban Planning an AIA/GBCA/COAA Joint Event
A team of designers, healthcare specialists, engineers, and builders, self-named the "PennFIRST Team," is nearly two years into the design and construction effort of a New Patient Pavilion for Penn Medicine. Using an integrated project delivery (IPD) strategy, the team is collaboratively tackling complex urban planning, design, and construction challenges inherent in an approximately 1.5 million-square-foot facility on a dense urban site. Learn how shared integration space, parametric cost modeling, PITs, HBDI, decision trees, full-scale mock-ups, and live simulations are being put to the test to encourage multidisciplinary collaboration and promote team problem-solving and innovative thinking.

June 15, 2017 - 3:30pm - CLC Behind the Scenes Tour: AmQuip
Join the Construction Leadership Council on a tour of the Corporate Headquarters of AmQuip Crane Rental LLC.

AmQuip Corporation was founded by Joseph L. Wesley, Sr. in 1967 and was originally known as the American Equipment Rental Company.
In the late 1970's and early 1980's, the American Equipment Rental Company developed a major operations center and office in Vancouver and made other regional acquisitions to become a major US player in the crane rental industry. After successfully re-trenching and managing through the early 2000's economic downturn, and refocusing under the name AmQuip "The Crane People", the company grew significantly, organically, and through acquisition.
In June 2007, the company was acquired by an investor group comprised of Altpoint Capital Partners, Lehman Brothers, Joseph L. Wesley, Sr. and Bard Capital Group LLC. Richard Bard of Bard Capital Group LLC was named Chairman of the Board.
AmQuip now has facilities in Atlanta, Georgia; Bensalem, Pennsylvania; Marcus Hook, Pennsylvania; Boston, Massachusetts; Carteret, New Jersey; Nashville Tennessee; Murfreesboro, Tennessee; Memphis, Tennessee; Cincinnati, Ohio; and Birmingham, Alabama.
