CMI Level 5 - Leadership and Management in Construction Programme

The CMI Level 5 - Leadership and Management in Construction Programme reflects current practice in leadership and allows participants to develop and expand their understanding and their application of leadership skills required in the construction workplace. Through key leadership models, theories and case studies, participants will be encouraged to develop their own leadership approach and consider how this fits with the vision, mission and values within their organisation.

On the course, participants will develop the key behaviours, attributes and skills of successful leaders and build their own levels of confidence in these areas. They will reflect on their levels of impact, and develop strategies to work with people including influencing, dealing with difficult people and fostering a culture of positive performance in their areas of responsibility. Through this engaging course participants will learn a range of theories to expand and challenge pre-conceptions of current leadership practices.
