“Transformational Leadership: Creating Safe, High Performance Work Teams

The session was held at the Drake Oak Brook Hotel, 2301 York Road, Oak Brook, IL 60523

The Electrical Contractors' Association of City of Chicago (ECA) Research and Education Committee presented an "in-person" classroom program called, “Transformational Leadership: Creating Safe, High Performance Work Teams." The program was conducted by Bruce Bolger, Bruce Bolger Company. The program was held on Thursday, May 27, 2021 at the Drake Oak Brook Hotel.

Mr. Bolger discussed that companies invest millions of dollars in technology, equipment and technical training for improved performance and productivity, with little to no investment in the human interaction side of leadership. Well-intentioned managers, supervisors and foremen create barriers to success, never realizing the negative impact they may have on subordinates, bosses or peers. This program was designed to identify and eliminate potential blind spots to those behaviors which could be sabotaging performance and create dysfunctional cultures impacting safety, quality and productivity.

Following this course, participants will be able to:

  • Discuss self-awareness and emotional intelligence skills that lead to transformational leadership and positive culture change
  • Explain how to establish a culture of trust and open communications at all levels of the organization
  • Describe improved leadership skills that lead to employee engagement and high performance work team

We thank Mr. Bolger for his time and expertise with the program!
