    Mortenson is seeking an Associate Leadership Development Specialist to provide communication support, logistical oversight, as well as event and project planning for all leadership and culture development initiatives and events. This role will actively contribute to the positive and energetic culture of the organization and the Learning & Development team.


    What will you be doing?

    • Manage and contribute to a communications strategy that supports organizational change management related to Mortenson’s culture model and the events, programs, technology and services that activate the model.
    • Provide creative and technical support for online learning experiences that help to scale leadership development across the organization.
    • Build and manage relationships with all levels of leadership within Mortenson’s business service and operations groups to support the team’s ability to collaborate and influence across the organization and best serve the development needs of our team members.
    • Handle planning and logistics for all leadership development initiatives and events to ensure smooth execution and an exceptional experience for team members and stakeholders.
    • Actively contribute to the vision of our team by generating out-of-the-box thinking, solutions and ideas that will support our goal of providing best-in-class development experiences that connect to business outcomes and perpetuate our unique culture.
    • Coordinate and administer personality assessments including related communication, reports, and logistics.

    How will you succeed?

Effective communication includes an openness to diverse input and feedback including actively seeking out perspectives different from your own.

    • Be an expert with a growth mindset: Knowledge of theories, principles, methods, and techniques relevant to the fields of leadership, organizational and talent development.

    • Maintain optimism in the face of ambiguity: You will join a team tasked with leading brand-new-to-the-organization mindsets, approaches, programs and events. Ambiguity is the one thing that is certain, so resilience is a must.
    • Be planful, but adaptable: appreciate attention to detail with strong planning and organizational skills with the ability to quickly adapt a plan to meet shifting team and business needs. Simultaneously manage a variety of projects in a fast-paced environment, while remaining flexible and positive.
    • Maximize available tips, tricks and tools: seek out solutions and be resourceful in pursuit of creativity, efficiency and overall design and aesthetic. Have a solid technical aptitude with the interest and ability to quickly learn and fully leverage new software and technology.
