Heath Suddleson has more than 25 years managing projects in the design and construction industry where he has led teams in managing billions of dollars worth of projects. In these roles, Heath has served as the Contractor, the Architect/Engineer, and even represented the Owner.
Working for some great leaders, and some horrible managers, has helped Heath realize some of the subtle nuances in attitude that can make the difference in turning a manager into a leader. Having had the opportunity to be a manager and a leader himself, Heath had the opportunity to not only become a student of leadership, but a practitioner as well.
He learned some of his most profound lessons by serving in volunteer leadership roles in organizations such as the American Legion, the Association for the Advancement of Cost Engineering, and Toastmasters International. In his work with Toastmasters International, Heath served in roles from local clubs through many levels in the organization, even having served from 2009-2011 on the Toastmasters International Board of Directors during a significant restructuring.
His bestselling book, “The Attitude Check:
