 Leadership Development Program

“This was a great experience that I know will be an integral part of my professional growth. The program taught me how to be a leader amongst various teams and generations in the workplace and has helped me build stronger relationships with our clients. I hope to take the skills that I’ve learned throughout the program and use them to cultivate new relationships within the industry and help build my career at Ruppert.”

LDP Graduate - Platinum Level and J.P. Blase Cooke Leadership Award Winner, 2017

 ABC’s Leadership Development Program (LDP) is a structured yet customizable action plan that cultivates the holistic skills required for executive leadership. Individuals selected for this program are often sought out as “rising stars” in their companies, with distinct qualities of character, command and intelligence. LDP graduates develop fundamental skills that bring great value to the individuals and their employers. The program helps participants:
  • further their leadership skills and professional development
  • learn more about ABC and increase their involvement in the association
  • demonstrate their desire and ability to serve as a leader of our industry
Throughout the 16-month cycle, program participants take part in both required coursework as well as elective activities to earn credits towards the completion of the program.

They also benefit from interacting with a team of construction industry professionals who serve as mentors and share their stories, advice, experience and fellowship.
