Future Leaders in Construction
Future Leaders in Construction (FLiC)
The Future Leaders in Construction program has been developed recognizing that the future of your company and the construction industry is dependent on effective leadership. FLiC is offered at our ABC NH/VT Education Center in Concord, NH as well as in Randolph, VT through our partnership with VTC's Office of Continuing Education & Workforce Development.
FLiC is designed as an interactive exchange to develop results-oriented leadership for the emerging leaders of ABC member firms and the construction industry.
Who is this program for?
We have a proven history: since 2007, 258 people have graduated.
Whether in the field or in the office; from emerging leaders to seasoned professionals, FLiC is designed for anyone who wants to make a positive impact on work and in life. The shared experiences among participants from a wide range of backgrounds and experiences is one of the features that makes this program unique and impactful.
· Carpenters and VP’s share ideas on conflict resolution.
· Estimators and foremen provide each other with guidance on their ROI projects.
· Technicians brainstorm listening skills with HR professionals.
· Millennials and Baby Boomers enlighten one another.
Participants (aka “Knowledge Builders”) accumulate, research and share a variety of resources including assessments, TedTalks, articles and YouTube videos that they can bring back to the field or the office. Collected information will be saved on a USB drive for each participant and provided at the end of the program.
Industry leaders have a conversation with participants related to their leadership journey, current trends and program-related topics.

What did they have to say?
“FLiC taught me the importance of relationship building and how it directly impacts the work environment as well as the job at hand.”
“Leadership is not about finding the fault with others, it’s more about learning about yourself and looking inward. When I first came to this program I thought it was going to be about how to manage people. I quickly found out that it is more about learning who I am. What are my strengths, weaknesses and areas that I need to work on? In this way I can be a more effective leader.”
