Synopsis: Construction leaders in North America manage billions of dollars and millions of craft workers each year. In tens of thousands of construction companies the competence, judgment and capacity of leaders determines the bottom line. Construction leadership is about responsibility. For people. For materials. For risk. For money. For client satisfaction. It is a challenge. It is a privilege. It is a profession. These construction leaders are the Alpha Dogs. Being an Alpha Dog is a remarkable opportunity. It is the profound reward of personal and professional growth. It is offered to all; from the young apprentice to the foreman to the project manager to the CEO. It waits for any who possess the ambition and determination. It rewards any with the grit and desire. It is the destiny for many though they don t even know it yet. Alpha Dogs run hard. Alpha Dogs thrive on achievement. Alpha Dogs get the recognition and rewards. You don t pet an Alpha Dog, you give them a job to do. That job starts now.

About the Author: Mark Breslin has four generations of contracting in his family. His great grandfather, grandfather and dad were all contractors. Mark has served as the Executive Director of the Engineering and Utility Contractors Association, (EUCA) for the last 22 years. EUCA is a multi-employer bargaining group that represents hundreds of firms, performing billions of dollars in contracts annually in California. Prior to this, Mark worked in the trades himself, financing both his high school and college educations. Mark became an Executive Director at age 26, becoming one of the youngest in the US to hold this position at the time. He has acted as chief negotiator, arbitration specialist and contractor advocate for the past 20+ years, negotiating over 100 master agreements. The association he works for represents only union contractors and has had this operational philosophy since inception. Known for his blunt and uncompromising style, Mark has made presentations on labor-management relations to over 100,000 labor, management and rank and file union members across the US and Canada. These presentations range from small group training programs to keynote speeches for over 2500 people. He has trained several union and management representatives on business development and market share recovery strategies in both the US and Canada resulting in hundreds, if not thousands, of new contracts being signed and relationships being built. He works with nearly every major International Union and dozens of employer associations throughout North America. Mark graduated from San Francisco State University with a degree in Industrial Design and has since taught at Sonoma State and Golden Gate Universities. His interests include mountaineering, adventure travel and being a good dad. He is married and lives in Dublin, California with his wife Susan and children Ally, Micheala and Jordan. His three books Organize or Die , Survival of the Fittest, and Million Dollar Blue Collar are in wide circulation in both the US and Canada. Over 70,000 books have now sold. His fourth book, Alpha Dogs: Leading Yourself and Others is in development. He has addressed over 500 audiences and well over 150,000 construction leaders and craft workers.
