The next time you come to your local home builders association (HBA) event, look around at your fellow members. I guarantee that more than half of the people you see will be associate members. These are people who are essential to the home building process and help enable our industry to provide Americans with an unrivaled selection of quality homes.
Among the ranks of associate members are subcontractors, sales and marketing specialists, architects, interior designers, title and settlement experts, lawyers, people in the financial services industry, product suppliers and manufacturers, and many more who are essential to the challenging task of providing housing for a growing population.

The role of the manager is currently undergoing a transformation. Historically, managers embraced the role of coach and mentor. Through informal conversations during the commute to work, over a coffee break, or while enjoying a burger after hours, managers passed along crucial information and knowledge about the organization’s culture. Even more formal conversations, like one-on-one meetings and small group gatherings, transferred insight and understanding to employees. This invaluable information wasn’t found in textbooks, from a class, or over an app, but given from someone with years — decades even — of experience.
But today, tighter budgets, flatter organizations, a heavy workload, and too many direct reports often leave managers without the time — and sometimes without the skills — to shoulder the responsibility of being coach and mentor. And yet, this function remains critical to the long-term health and productivity of the organization.
How to Blow Your Boss's Mind
We all want to get ahead. Still, even when it seems you're doing everything right--you're never late to work, rarely take a sick day, and always meet deadlines--promotions can be few and far between.
You're putting the work in, so why aren't you getting rewarded? The answer is simple: You don't get promoted for fulfilling your boss's expectations.
Your boss's expectations are the price of entry. Even if you're making a great effort and doing all that's asked of you, you won't stand out. You'll be seen as someone who completes the minimum requirements, and no one who builds a great career is seen this way.
