The second experience in our Emerging Leaders Program was immersive, including engaging tours of supply-chain processes and interactive leadership development coaching.
On Tuesday, Emerging Leaders were invited to participate in our Triangle CEC, focused on Best Partnership Practices to Reduce Carbon. Attendees heard from CRMCA’s Jessica Wilson on current sustainability initiatives impacting the concrete community and appropriate solutions for meeting evolving market expectations. Our guest speakers, Jason Blyth and Tyler Krantz of Thomas Concrete, shared international and regional case studies on best practices to reduce GWP (Global Warming Potential). The CEC was followed by a SEFA STAR plant tour in Moncure, NC, where participants had a detailed walking tour of how fly ash is processed as a recycled material.
The second day of training included a half-day professional development workshop from Catapult’s Leadership Coach, Nelson Santiago. Our cohort explored the difference between leadership and management through both introspective and group activities on how we define effective leaders. It was an exceptional program resulting in actionable mission and vision statements for personal growth. Following our workshop, we were taken on a tour of Carolina Sunrock’s quarry – a massive aggregate operation. Attendees were able to see first-hand how stone is sourced and processed, and the magnitude of scale for a crucial supply chain dependency.
We thank our supporters, leadership coaches, and our tour guides for helping us to create a meaningful experience for all involved.
