Posted on September 29, 2016 by FMI CorporationThe race to cultivate and transition leaders into executive positions is on. Is your company ready for the challenge? With 10,000 baby boomers retiring every day, the construction industry is in a race to fill vacant leadership seats with candidates who are as competent as they are agile. Defined as the power to move quickly and nimbly while thinking on your feet and acting decisively, agility helps leaders tackle the challenges of today’s business environment while also thinking about the bigger picture and planning for the future.

Posted on December 12, 2012 by FMI CorporationWorld View is the Heart of True Leadership By Tim Tokarczyk At the Center for Strategic Leadership, we spend a great deal of time thinking about, discussing, and researching various leadership topics. However, there is one concept that we come back to repeatedly. If you have been through any of the programs—our four-day Leadership Institute, our myriad Leader Labs, or heard us speak at a conference—you likely have heard us discuss the concept of World View. We believe our World View is at the heart of true leadership. We define World View as the set of beliefs and assumptions that each person holds, consciously and unconsciously, about how the world operates and how we operate in the world. Our World View is really the lens through which we see the world. As individuals, we often make the wrong assumption that everyone sees the world the same way we do. That could not be further from the truth. That is one of the reasons why we love this concept — because it gets to the fact that each of us is different and we bring unique perspectives to our roles at work.
