    The Big Picture:

     

    Mortenson is seeking a Senior Leadership Development Specialist to oversee leader-level-specific development programs designed to accelerate the impact and effectiveness of Mortenson’s people-leaders. This is an individual contributor role within an intact and dynamic team.

    To ensure success in this role, you will bring best-in-class experience, innovative ideas and non-traditional solutions to the traditional problem of helping people successfully transition through all levels of the leadership pipeline. You will build and maintain strong partnerships with external experts, thought-leaders and consultants. You will also create meaningful connections with internal leadership, various stakeholder groups and organizational influencers to ensure collaboration, co-creation and buy-in. Above all, you will ensure an exceptional experience for all team members while actively contributing to a positive, energetic culture of the organization.

    Responsibilities

    What will you be doing?

    • Partner with Leadership Development Manager and external consultants on the design, implementation, and oversight of Mortenson’s approach to developing people leaders.
    • Partner with external consultants and Learning & Development manager to manage content and overall learner experiences for online leader development programs that support in-person and on-the-job learning.
    • Ensure all leadership development content and experiences align to culture principles and values.
    • Manage all program reporting and analytics, including evaluations to drive continuous improvement, accountability, and organizational buy-in.
    • Provide clear communication to program participants, supervisors and leadership; ensuring completion of pre-work, assessments, post-work, and follow-up learning nudges and assignments.
    • Support the implementation and continuous improvement of programs, technology, services, and experiences to augment Mortenson’s culture of learning, continuous improvement and commitment to team member experience.
    • Support all efforts around organizational culture, inclusion and diversity, and change management.
    • Effectively work and build relationships with those of diverse backgrounds, perspectives and leadership levels.
    • All other duties as assigned.

     

     

    How will you succeed?

    • Master the inclusive and interpersonal: practice well-developed communication skills with the ability to clearly articulate messages to a variety of audiences using various modalities. Effective communication includes an openness to diverse input and feedback including actively seeking out perspectives different from your own.
    • Fully commit to the customer experience: the team, our group, and the company are your customers. Be a champion of customer experience to every team member with whom you interact and fully commit to the team experience.
    • Be an expert with a growth mindset: Knowledge of theories, principles, methods, and techniques relevant to the fields of leadership, organizational and talent development. More importantly, live life as a learner – be more concerned with what you don’t know than letting everyone know what you do know and be a champion of continuous improvement.
    • Simplify the complex: have a strategic mindset that sees connections between otherwise disparate activities, projects, initiatives, and messages.
    • 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.
