Working for some great leaders, and some horrible managers, has helped Heath realize some of the subtle nuances in attitude that can make the difference in turning a manager into a leader. Having had the opportunity to be a manager and a leader himself, Heath had the opportunity to not only become a student of leadership, but a practitioner as well
He learned some of his most profound lessons by serving in volunteer leadership roles in organizations such as the American Legion, the Association for the Advancement of Cost Engineering, and Toastmasters International. In his work with Toastmasters International, Heath served roles from local clubs through many levels in the organization, even having served from 2009-2011 on the Toastmasters International Board of Directors.
Most recently, Heath worked in a corporate role for one of the world’s largest Engineering and Construction Companies developing and conducting training programs to help the next generation of Project Managers become more successful in their roles.
His bestselling book, The Attitude Check: Lessons In Leadership has become a practical field guide for leaders to harness their attitudes to increase productivity and reduce turnover in the work place. Some organizations have incorporated his book into their standard training programs. He has been featured in many publications on the topic of how to engage teams, including Engineering News Record, CFO Magazine, Bloomberg Business, and Fast Company. Heath has presented to audiences all over the world who have included Bechtel Corporation, AECOM, Skanska, The Project Management Institute, the Association for the Advancement of Cost Engineering, and the Construction Specifications Institute.
