The Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) will host a free Leadership Workshop, Friday, March 29, at the Golden Nugget Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. The full-day event will feature discussions on how to make leaders in the inspection, cleaning and restoration industries, as well as provide guidance on leadership in the standards-setting and certification environment.  

“This is the first leadership workshop of its kind for the Institute, and we’re excited to be able to offer it to our industry colleagues for free,” said Pete Duncanson, IICRC Chairman. “Encouraging leadership growth in the areas of inspection, cleaning and restoration will allow the industry to expand and improve. We’re excited to honor our mission to deepen leadership ties to the industries we serve.”

Kicking off the workshop with a two-part presentation on effective leadership is general session speaker Jeffrey Cufaude. Cufaude will discuss both timeless and timely leadership practices and principals, including: the distinctions between leadership and management, the five practices of extraordinary leadership, specific leadership practices needed right now and more.

The workshop will also feature two breakout sessions on the role of leadership in Standards, with Standards Director Mili Washington; and Certifications, with Certification Exam Developer Jennifer Bethke.

Attendees will receive seven CEC hours for one full-day of attendance and IICRC Approved Instructors will receive one point for one full-day of attendance.
