What can does it take to reach the top of the industry?
The entrepreneurial nature of the construction profession rewards hard work and proactive problem solving, with opportunities for every skill set.
There are many ways to reach senior management and the C-suite, but every career path has similarities.
1. Build a broad foundation
Those aiming for an executive position will be expected to display technical expertise and knowledge, and while they may not need to be experts in every function, they must display a business understanding of how various functions interact and impact the company.
2. Become a project management expert
Beyond the technical this is very much a relationship-driven industry, both internally managing projects and teams, and externally competing for bids, working with contractors, and making hiring decisions.
3. Be a business leader
A construction professional’s network and reputation are both crucial for success and those assessing their career options should ensure they are investing the time and effort necessary into building relationships and their personal brand.
