Restoration Technical Institute and The Language of Leadership, Launches a Leadership Academy for the Restoration, Cleaning, and Related Industries

Reading, PA-based Restoration Technical Institute (RTI) and The Language of Leadership, headquartered in Bend, OR, are thrilled to announce the launch of the Academy. 

Erik Berglund, the visionary Founder and CEO of The Language of Leadership, has emerged as a leading authority in the field of effective leadership practices.  As a compliment to the programs that Erik has developed and launched, the Language of Leadership Academy for Restoration and related industries.  It is a safe virtual space where leaders can practice, receive coaching, and continue to learn and master the skill of leadership.

The Language of Leadership Academy has public offerings that allow participants with any leadership title from any vertical, but this special RTI academy will allow leaders to customize their language and focus specifically on the challenges of leading in the Restoration, Cleaning and related industries.

Berglund states, “Knowledge is great but skill and using your skill is way better.”  Leadership is a skill that can be developed with practice and feedback.  Berglund goes on to say, “You can add all the organization, structure, and strategy you want, but if your management team (at any level) cannot hold people accountable in a constructive and positive way, you are going to lose people and profits.”

“This skill is the backbone of highly accountable teams.  It is instrumental to our operations, training, change management, and more.” stated, Lisa Lavender, COO, Restoration Technical Institute.  “The Language of Leadership Academy fills a gap that is critical in our operations.  The Academy element of The Language of Leadership curriculum is in perfect alignment with the Learn – Do – Collect Feedback – Repeat model that we believe in at RTI.”
