Business Management


In this session, construction industry expert Eric Anderton will walk you through a powerful communication framework that will teach you and your leadership team how to grow as leaders and communicators.    

The framework is rooted in a deep understanding of the construction industry, how humans function, and what you can do to bring out the very best in them. To improve your communication, you have to focus on three messages:

  • Vision
  • Direction
  • Comfort 

You’ll walk away from this workshop with a clear understanding of the  methods that great leaders employ to improve their communication and increase their influence and impact.
