School of Building Construction Lunch Lecture | Andrea S. Rutledge | President & CEO, CMAA

Lecture Topic | Construction Management is Leadership Development    

Construction managers lead the complex process of creating elements of the built environment. These skills are qualitative and interpersonal and call on each of us to think creatively about people. Done well, good leadership creates and sustains an environment where team members contribute openly, communicate honestly, and work collectively to realize the best outcomes.
