Garver's Emerging Leaders

Rusty TateBlake Roberson
Two Garver employees are participating in the Emerging Leaders program, sponsored by the American Council of Engineering Companies of Arkansas and the Arkansas Society of Professional Engineers.

Blake Roberson and Rusty Tate are attending sessions and classes to further develop their leadership and professional skills. Topics include conflict resolution, public speaking, and contracts and risk reduction.

“The Emerging Leaders program is improving my management and oversight skills," Roberson said. "A large part of a leader’s success is founded in team interaction and relationships. By improving my management skills, I can build stronger relationships with my team members and improve our ability to work together.”

This is the program's third year, and eight students are involved in the program.

"I've picked up skills that will serve me well in my professional career, such as the importance of understanding and managing different personalities and expectations - and how crucial that is to a successful team and project," Tate said.

Garver's Keith Tencleve graduated from the program in 2009-2010, and Todd Mueller participated in the 2010-2011 class.
