Registration for the 2022 Fenestration and Glazing Industry Alliance (FGIA) Leadership Development Program is now open through March 31, with trainings beginning this spring at two different levels. For the first time ever, FGIA will offer both a New Participant level and an Advanced Training level, making it possible for those who have participated in the past to gain new insights at a higher plane of experience as a leader.

“We are pleased to be able to expand the options for this popular training program,” said Kaydeen Laird, FGIA Education Manager. “Many of our previous participants have found value in the coursework as part of their ongoing growth process and expressed interest in a higher level of training. Now, they can build on what they have learned and further hone their leadership skills with the Advanced Training sessions.”Both levels will be led by longtime Program Facilitator, Oak Moser who has vast experience in the glass industry, as well as coaching certification and training.“The Leadership Development Program focuses on the soft skills leaders need to achieve their full potential,” said Moser. “Everyone in the workforce develops hard skills required to be employed in the fenestration and glazing industry, but developing soft skills provides the necessary intangibles to become a great leader.” Some examples of soft skills include communicating effectively with people, recognizing a company’s culture and effectively aligning with that culture and understanding accountability in the workplace.
