Overview

Construction leaders in North America manage billions of dollars and millions of craft workers each year. In tens of thousands of construction companies the competence, judgment and capacity of leaders determines the bottom line. Construction leadership is about responsibility. For people. For materials. For risk. For money. For client satisfaction. It is a challenge. It is a privilege. It is a profession. These construction leaders are the Alpha Dogs.
Being an Alpha Dog is a remarkable opportunity. It is the profound reward of personal and professional growth. It is offered to all; from the young apprentice to the foreman to the project manager to the CEO. It waits for any who possess the ambition and determination. It rewards any with the grit and desire. It is the destiny for many though they don't even know it yet.
Alpha Dogs run hard. Alpha Dogs thrive on achievement. Alpha Dogs get the recognition and rewards. You don't pet an Alpha Dog, you give them a job to do.
That job starts now.

Editorial Reviews

General Foreman Alberta - Daryll Boehme
No amount of money can buy the tools I’m learning from you right now. I’m currently a general Foreman working in the oil and gas industry in northern Alberta and I truly believe what I’m learning from you is going to help me grow personally as well as professionally. Without a doubt the book Alpha Dog is one of the best reads to date. Thank you for sharing this Mark!
Labour Relation & EHSALSTOM Canada Inc. - Marty Albright, Director
I've read Mark's latest book, "ALPHA DOG" and bar none, it is the best book I have ever read on Leadership.
Korellis Roofing - Pete Korellis, President
I can't begin to tell you how inspired and enthused I felt after reading it [Alpha Dog] and plan to follow some of your suggestions.
Murphy Industrial Coatings, Inc. - Steve Murphy, President
I have completed reading and making notes in Alpha Dog. It is fantastic. It hits most of the management challenges a construction company faces daily. I have distributed the book to all my managers and staff and have asked them for their input of what they have learned and how can they use some of the lessons to increase their performance, and the performance of their teams. I will be using the book a lot at team review, planning, and development meetings with my managers.
