What Clients are Saying
We just watched a couple of videos and they are awesome! What a great program, so simple yet packed with information!
These short videos along with the Five Minute Foreman book have been a great help to CSCRCs foreman meetings. The foremen are no longer just foremen. Mark’s coaching videos helped them understand that they actually manage millions of dollars for their companies when building a project, and now they think of themselves as Professional Construction Leaders. I’m looking forward to utilizing more of the videos and books at the meetings. Education and empowerment is the key to success.
I think the Professional Construction Leadership training is excellent. Just long enough and focused on a simple and very important concept.
Mark Breslin’s The Professional Construction Leader Video Series works! It works, because Mark is real. His blatantly honest family history and experience have wrapped him into who he is today. No bias, no bullshit. He speaks with clarity, sincerity, and conviction. The messages are simple, clear and strong. To do this in two minute messages is perfect for our very busy people. Thanks Mark!
The Professional Construction Leader coaching videos have been instrumental to the success of our Foreman meetings. We watch videos and then use the provided discussion questions. We talk about real experiences on the job site that were related to a video. One example is one of our members drove up to the job site, told us he really did look in his rear-view mirror and said, “I run millions of dollars’ worth of work, I am a professional.” He was recently promoted to Assistant Superintendent.
Microlearning + Construction
PhDs, research scientists and Millennials agree. When it comes to learning it’s time for something new! Microlearning is powerful, compelling, convenient and sticky with retention. The Professional Construction Leader (PCL) video coaching program offers short powerful lessons on motivation, communication, safety and a lot more.
The Professional Construction Leader is a video based coaching series for foremen, general foremen, and superintendents in the construction and utility industries.
The series currently has (70) micro-learning video sessions on critical issues, skills and strategies that field leaders need to succeed in improving performance on the jobsite.
Research shows that Gen X and Millenials prefer short duration, high value content. They want critical information in a condensed format and they want it delivered electronically to be used on their time schedule. Experts now say that you lose part of your younger audience at 90 seconds and a majority at more than 3-4 minutes. Professional Construction Leader is built with these specifications in mind, with high impact and short duration content.
It is suggested to send one coaching session to all field leaders and future field leaders every other week for a total of 26 times per year. Research also shows that if your frequency is too high, there will often be lower utilization by your learning audience. So 26x per year, plus a couple of high impact webinars is the model provided.
Two options are available. For most companies, they would pick an administrator who will have password protected access to the library of programs. They would pick 26 sessions from the library to be used in the upcoming year. These now would be available to be sent by a link to all of your field leaders over and over to reinforce key skills, values and tactics. For larger companies with their own IT resources, the video content would be provided directly and distributed from their intranet or learning platform.
We have built this to be a value-based model – very minimal investment but long term cumulative impact of the consistent reinforcement providing great ROI. The subscription cost is based on the number of participants and can easily cost less than $10/mo for each subscriber.
Current clients are being asked to participate in beta testing in year one and two to provide feedback and refinement of content and delivery. Current partners include Fortis Alberta (a major Canadian multi-province utility), APi Group (a multi-billion-dollar parent company) and a good number of long term Breslin Strategy contractor and union clients.
