The morning begins with Construction Management Student Presentations and a Capstone Competition (attendees are invited to be part of the audience).

The presentations and competition will be followed by a keynote presentation: Developing Your "Like Ability Factor" With People Reading Skills presented by Dr. Michael Monroe Kiefer.

In business and in life, you need to be able to get along with all different personality types. This session energizes and positively empowers individuals with people reading skills. Participants will learn to foster positive relationships with others to maintain strong cooperative and respectful working relationships. They will learn skills to modify their daily communications with others to develop their “like ability factor” whether they are a project leader or team member. This is a very inspirational, fun session, studded with entertaining real life experiences to illustrate the concepts. Bonus! All participants take a short survey to determine their individual personality style and strengths.

Dr. Michael Monroe Kiefer has a Ph.D. in psychology and is the author of 8 books including, The Powermind System, Life Guide to Success. He travels nationally and speaks on over 40 motivational and leadership topics. He has trained staff from the FBI, State Patrol and Police and Sheriff’s Associations in personality profiling, as well as corporations including Mathiowetz Construction and Kraus-Anderson.
