Professional Development
Building leaders

ABC offers leadership development classes for young and seasoned professionals. Our Future Leaders program, designed for up-and-coming leaders within your company, teaches attendees the skills required to manage themselves and lead others. For current leaders within your organization, we offer Advanced Leadership. This program is designed to help managers better understand themselves and the individuals they lead, empowering them to manage and motivate their teams toward success.

Future Leaders Program
For over 15 years, ABC's Future Leaders Program has developed hundreds of leaders within Georgia's construction industry. Future Leaders alumni have gone on to become vice presidents, directors, and senior level managers within their organizations. A few alumni have even gone onto start their own companies.

Through monthly leadership classes and peer interaction, Future Leaders helps develop your employees in the areas of communication, leadership, motivation, negotiation, conflict resolution, people skills, financial management and other key competencies.

Who is eligible?
It is preferable (but not mandatory) that nominated individuals have current or future management and decision-making responsibility and have been with their company for at least a year. Due to limited space of 36 participants, employees of ABC member companies will receive first priority. Companies may nominate more than one employee.However, depending on demand, the number of employees per company may be limited.

Nominations
To apply for Future Leaders, interested individuals must be nominated by their supervisor or another executive at their company. Nominations open in September for the following year.

ABC's Advanced Leadership Course will help your leaders think differently, and inspire them to bring fresh ideas to your teams, departments, processes and entire organizations. This course is perfect for graduates of Future Leaders who are looking for a “next step” for continued leadership development. 

Created and delivered by leadership training experts at The Riverbend Group, each module is designed to inspire, equip, lead and challenge people to become greater. The program consists of five sessions, each building upon the last, delivering memorable, applicable results that will have a direct impact on students’ ability to lead and manage their teams and direct reports.
