Journeymen Leaders

Journeymen Leaders: Building Leadership for a Strong Future

The UBC actively promotes a constructive culture on the jobsite, where members value and motivate one another to achieve their highest potential and ensure maximum productivity. In this course at the International Training Center in Las Vegas, journeymen develop leadership, mentoring, coaching and communication skills. These journeymen leaders help secure the Brotherhood’s future by learning to engage with newer members and leading by example, all while promoting positive work environments and productivity on the job. Both participants and their supporting contractors benefit by participating in the UBC Journeymen Leadership training program.
