As one of the most active construction Partnering facilitators in the world, Neal Flesner is passionate about forming collaborative partnerships that lead to a remarkable project experience for all parties involved. No matter what the project delivery method, the number of parties involved, or the challenges, he has a strong reputation for achieving team success. Neal's proven Partnering strategies include creating project-specific plans, setting common measurable goals, and training team members in open communication techniques.
Neal became a Construction Partnering Facilitator over 14 years ago, driven by curiosity and a desire to develop solutions to complex challenges. He enjoys facilitating project teams mainly because of the results he can achieve for his clients by fostering collaborative relationships through honest communication. He is recognized by clients throughout the world for his no-nonsense, pragmatic approach to problem solving and communication.
In order to fully understand the needs of all stakeholders, Neal conducts comprehensive client interviews. These interviews provide the basis for the format of the Partnering sessions. Every situation is different. There is a specific strategy for every project. Neal's role is to facilitate open dialogue, transparency, and frank (and sometimes vulnerable) conversations that lead to better strategy and issue resolution. The idea is to get individuals, not organizations, to commit to specific actions with dates and deliverables.

Velo Group Construction Project

Neal has facilitated Partnering sessions for nearly every type of vertical and horizontal construction project—including hospitals, highways, airports, railways, water treatment plants, and more. Among the people, he works with are project owners, construction companies, architecture, and engineering firms, as well as third-party entities vital to the project's success.
 
Each team, project, and challenge is unique, and that is what excites Neal the most. With a goal-oriented vision and the desire to move forward with velocity, he believes extraordinary results will be produced. Partnering strategies based on Neal's forward-looking approach have won numerous industry awards, allowing the project team to be recognized. As an example, there is the Associated General Contractors (AGC) of America Partnering Excellence Award, the International Partnering Institute (IPI) Partnered Project of the Year Award, and the Caltrans Excellence in Partnering Awards.
Neal Flesner says, in my role as a Partnering facilitator, I am a vision-driven, results-oriented leader and team builder. Every team is different. I don't lecture, play games, or conduct personality tests or team-building exercises. What I do is create meaningful conversations between directors, executives, managers, and stakeholders. To move the team forward with velocity, I help them develop an action plan.
