Business Radio X: Ted Turner With Intelligent Leadership Executive Coach
With over 40 years of leadership experience in the Engineering, Construction, and Services industries, Ted Turner has successfully managed large, complex projects in 31 states and 17 countries and four continents. His professional credentials include General Engineering licenses in four states and contractor licenses in 12 states, as well as certifications from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, The U.S. Navy Facilities Engineering Command, The Board of Certified Safety Professionals, The American welding society, IMD Lausanne Switzerland and other entities. He is co-author of the ACCE Decision and Risk Management Professional Study Guide, and his accomplishments have been featured in Popular Science, The San Diego Union Tribune, The Austin Construction News, and other publications.
As a business executive Ted has directed business portfolios exceeding $3.5 Billion USD to profitable, safe, and timely completion. An example of his entrepreneurial acumen is the recent development of a small specialty contractor from $24 Million USD to $140 Million USD in yearly revenue while increasing EBITA from 6.7% to 16.2%
However, in Ted’s view those accomplishments pale in comparison to the successes in working with executives and others from around the world, bridging differences in culture, education, habit, language, religion, customs, experience, and attitudes to build cohesive teams of people that respect each other’s talents, show patience for their weaknesses, and embrace their mutual success.
Helping individuals and groups unlock their potential and realize successes they never thought possible have by far been the most rewarding experiences in a long and varied career.
