Sometimes leaders are born, and sometimes they are built. You may already have the necessary knowledge to teach others and may have or be pursuing a management-level role. However, knowledge and experience do not always equate to skilled leadership. That is why FGIA is proud to offer the Leadership Development Program, which is geared toward honing skills to effectively lead your team.

The FGIA Leadership Development Program focuses on the soft skills leaders need to achieve their full potential. Everyone in the workforce develops hard skills required to be employed in the fenestration and glazing industry, but developing soft skills provides the necessary intangibles to become a great leader. Soft skills include things like communicating effectively with people, recognizing a company’s culture and effectively aligning with that culture and understanding accountability in the workplace. The program offers one module every month for twelve months, via an online webinar.

Led by Program Facilitator Oak Moser, each module is 60-90 minutes in length. If you are unable to attend a scheduled module, you will be given a link to view a rebroadcast of what you missed. Each online webinar also provides time for Q&A with the presenter.

Moser is trained and certified with Coaching 2 Connect, Inc. He is the author of two successful Leadership Development Training Programs called “Performance Architecture” and “Leadership Spectrum.” The development programs are designed to help coaches and executives manage themselves as well as relationships with their team members and to build a winning culture serving their clients with high standards. He is experienced coaching leaders and athletes to get the most out of each other for team success.

“The FGIA leadership development program opened a door for me that I did not know even existed,” said Bill Briese, GED Integrated Solutions, who recently completed the program. “Yes, I have the technical skills to do my job well, but never thought it was worth my time to invest in the soft-skills side of managing and leading. This program provided so many tools and techniques from which to constantly build, and even though I’m new at implementing them, I have already seen positive motivation and results from my department. Definitely a must-attend program for current and future leaders.”
