To provide outstanding service to its clients, Berghammer is committed to the professional growth and improvement of its employees. That is the foundation of Berghammer University, a philosophy of providing each employee with the necessary tools for a successful career.
Continued training is a key corporate initiative. Whether that training takes place in a classroom, or at the jobsite with safety demonstrations and toolbox talks, every employee is given a chance to improve, grow and succeed.
|Mandeville Training :: October 2010|
Approximately 35 of Berghammer’s field superintendents and project managers attended the Mandeville Training led by Diane Chamness, Chamness Group. Mandeville Technique was developed by Dr. Stu Rose, an architect and engineer by profession, as a communication tool specifically targeted to the building industry and other service type businesses. The training is a hands-on process. A third of the training is “lecture” and the remainder is observation and role playing to practice the skills being taught.
Mandeville technique teaches individuals how to:
Gather data relevant to the client or their “hot buttons”
Uncover clients needs, likes, experiences, dislikes and past/potential problems
Establish trust early on
Uncover leads early in the process
The Mandeville Technique is widely used in the U.S. and the technique is endorsed by the AIA, AGC and numerous professional engineering groups.
