  • The Five Drivers of Business Success

    Contains 2 Component(s), Includes Credits

    The bottom line of any construction business is driven by five key functions and how they interact to produce outcomes – both good and bad. In fact, outcomes are always a reflection of this dynamic. Having a clear understanding of these functions, or drivers, how they impact one another and how to streamline them can help a business capture more marketplace value and drive higher profits.

    One of the most insidious dangers to leaders of construction companies is the assumption that things will work out and that there will be profit at the end of the year. At best, assumptions are wishful thinking – hoping for the best. But hope is not a strategy. Faced with the mandate to strategically invest limited resources, leaders must know exactly what they want to achieve in order to ensure optimal outcomes. Though it sounds like simple common sense, in reality, it poses a formidable hurdle for most due to lack of perspective. The Five Drivers session will illuminate the key drivers of a profitability in a construction business and more importantly, provide a clear perspective of how they work together to create enduring and lasting success.

    Participants in this webinar replay will:

    • Recognize how the five functions (drivers) of a construction business work together and impact outcomes incrementally and exponentially.
    • Demonstrate and develop systems to track the effectiveness of each driver and course correct in real time.
    • Prepare and create an action plan to leverage each driver, improve performance and achieve maximum impact into the future.

  • How Do I Maneuver through the Issues that Marijuana May Bring?

    Contains 2 Component(s), Includes Credits

    This presentation will address issues for landlords of rental housing related to the processing of reasonable accommodation requests, duties of affordable housing landlords to provide drug-free housing, and the impacts marijuana has on other residents of the rental community. The level of content in this webinar replay is for the novice learner. This webinar is FREE for HCCP designation holders and HCG members until December 31, 2019. Log in to http://nahb.org with your regular username and password, and the webinar price will be "$0" when added to your cart.

    Marijuana use, both recreational and medical, is a trending topic due to ever-changing laws and regulations at the state and local levels. Marijuana use poses a problem for federally assisted housing landlords who have the duty to comply with the Quality Housing and Work Responsibility Act of 1998 (QHWRA), requiring them to deny housing to those that currently use a controlled substance. Under federal law, the use of medical marijuana remains a crime and under the current administration, it is likely to remain that way. With rapidly changing laws across the country, this issue continues to come up for landlords. If a resident submits a reasonable accommodation request to use marijuana in a location where it is permitted, what is the best practice for landlords to address those requests? In addition, landlords have difficulty addressing resident complaints about the odor emanating from the use of marijuana on the premises and the impacts on resident morale and prospects touring the communities.

    Participants in this webinar replay will:

    • Identify the Landlord/Tenant Duties when living in an apartment community.
    • Interpret the Fair Housing Law and how it applies to each resident.
    • Proactively address marijuana issues and practice tips to avoid these issues.
