NAAEI Leadership Experience: Powered by Dale Carnegie

Responding to the need for leadership training within the apartment industry, NAAEI has partnered with Dale Carnegie Training to design and deliver a world-class program called the NAAEI Leadership Experience.

New for 2017!  Successful leaders are those willing to adapt and sharpen their own skills to improve team performance.  By completing these full-day seminars - based on Dale Carnegie's world-class curricula and developed by apartment industry executives - you'll learn what it takes to be a leader who inspires and empowers but doesn't dictate, creating confident and enthusiastic teams that grow your net operating income.

If you're in charge of a team - whether as a corporate department head, midlevel manage, or other team leader - these seminars are for you!

The course price is $799 per person per session.

NAAEI Leadership Experience delivers results. Read the testimonials and feedback given from real people. 

"Executives recognized that while most companies do a good job training onsite staff, when onsite staff are promoted to regional or corporate department positions, few companies have training programs that help turn that good manager into a successful leader who will inspire and motivate, rather than direct and dictate.

If you work in a regional position or as a corporate department head and would like to learn how to lead effectively across generations, delegate tasks to develop and train others and most importantly, find time to work on future business growth, The NAAEI Leadership Experience is an investment that will pay dividends.
