No organization can succeed without good leaders. And a leader's most important task is to acquire and keep good people, and make leaders out of them.  This is because in any organization or company, people are the only assets that can continually appreciate.  Systems become dated, buildings deteriorate, and machinery wears down.  But people grow, develop and become more productive and effective if they have a good leader who understands their value.

Organizations cannot increase their value or productivity without people.  An organization's growth potential is directly related to its personnel potential.  A good leader is someone who knows how to develop other leaders.

About the Speaker

Mark Nesbitt accumulated over 30 years of experience, expertise and leadership in the Ottawa construction industry filling staff, supervisory and managerial roles including General Manager of Quarry Operations for one of Ontario's top aggregate producers.

In numerous engagements, he played a vital role in recruiting, training, and promoting employees while helping organizations clarify their vision and establish the goals, roles, systems and processes to reinforce that vision. By studying John Maxwell's teachings for over 15 years, he acquired the knowledge and tools necessary to help people increase their effectiveness, advance their careers, and create a highly productive, safer organization. Mark has had the privilege of working with over 50 companies across Ontario.



Here is what some industry professionals have had to say about Mark's teaching:

"Fowler Construction had a great learning and growing experience through Mark's leadership seminars. He has provided comprehensive and practical food for thought, and has shown us that we can reach higher and greatly benefit from the results."

- Moreen Miller, President

"Thank you to Mark for sharing with our team good business and personal practices."

- Deborah Mohr-Caldwell, Director, Goldie Mohr Ltd.

We've had Mark come in and train our staff and managers a couple of times now and we always get more out of it than we expect. Mark's unique experiences and knowledge of the construction industry give him the ability to make his training relevant to my employees.

- Mark Watson, Regional Manager Sunbelt Rentals
