The construction and property industries are people industries, after all.

Except, typically when we look at our built form, and ask, 'who built this?', the answer is a name of a company.

But who are the people behind the projects, who are the ones who have brought them to life?

That's why my new podcast, Constructing You, looks at the people behind the projects, and I'm starting at the top.

I'll be sharing interviews with exceptional leaders and industry titans with you.

I'm not only going to find out what they do, but also who they are, and who they've had to become to achieve what they have. What does it really take to have an exemplary career in construction and property today?

Because I want to inspire and ignite you to become not just a technically apt person on projects. I want you to become an exemplary person behind the project, via learning from the people who have already made it. I want you to aim as high as the skyscrapers in your career, and life, by sharing the successful journeys of others so you can see what's possible.

There is no other podcast like this, dedicated to helping you build your career, AND yourself in the building industry. So are you ready to come on this journey with me? Lets go!

    Elvin K. Box on Constructing You - Creation, Innovation and Change

    Commencing my career as an apprentice carpenter and joiner, I am a Chartered Builder who holds an MBA with the Open University Business School (OUBS). An acclaimed international speaker, facilitator, and writer, I have become renown for using creativity to enable innovation and business improvement. This has led to undertaking notable assignments, including the MoD's Strategic Defence Review and the UK's major Rail Programme, High Speed Two.

    A past Chair of The Chartered Institute of Building's International Research and Innovation Panel and the current Chair of the London Constructing Excellence Club, some of my other credits include keynote speaker for the 'London Build' Exhibition & Conference, and the 'Leading European Architects Forum' (LEAF). I have also authored: 'Give Peace and Conflict a Chance; my Personal Voodoo' for the acclaimed personal development book, 'My Voodoo' (Firth and Carayol, 2002); 'Power Facilitation', a chapter in 'Business Creativity-Practitioner's Handbook', University of Greenwich (Dr. Kanes Rajah, 2007).

    Leadership In Construction - The Book!

    ICYMI:

    It all starts and ends with leadership.

    It's a pleasure and a privilege to announce that I'll be releasing my second book (!) - Leadership in Construction

    My mission is to capture real-time leadership lessons that epitomize exceptional, exemplary and excellent leadership in the industry. Because there is no place anymore for mediocrity in the industry, and to highlight what it really takes to be an exemplar.

    Leadership to its highest echelon is not for the faint of heart, or those who are looking for an easy and comfortable ride.

    This book is the guide, mentor and lifelong handbook to the principles of leadership that reflect what I've termed Triple E leadership. I've captured my lessons and experiences , but...

    There's more!

    It's an honour to also announce that my book includes the leadership lessons, insights and wisdom from 9 exemplary leaders and industry titans from Constructing You.

    Stay tuned as I'll announce the contributors soon.

    The industry is yearning for calibre leadership; are you with me to construct this together?
