It's Time To Get Schooled

Climbing the corporate ladder may seem like the hard part, but it’s what you do once you’re at the top that’s often the most challenging aspect of your career. 

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 facilitated by Dale Carnegie, a leader in employee development, is an investment that will pay dividends.

The two-day seminar will be led by Ercell Charles, Vice President of Instruction and a Dale Carnegie Master Trainer for Dale Carnegie of Georgia. He has facilitated programs for AT&T, Coca Cola, Reebok and The Home Depot.

Charles will cover developing personal leadership, building trust, credibility and respect, communicating to lead, time control to work on your business, delegation, coaching for performance, and disagreeing agreeably. 

We all know we could use a little more of that in the apartment industry.

After this program, participants will be able to create a personal vision as a leader and manager, manage “up” for influence, lead effectively across generations, manage the day-to-day operations and find time to work on future business growth, delegate tasks and responsibilities to develop and train others, and apply the steps of the coaching process to improve performance in others.

“Most training programs focus on the ‘what’ and ‘how’ for management but often come up short with the intangible skills needed for execution,” says Michael Werner, Executive Vice President of Portfolio Management for Atlanta-based TriBridge Residential. “Take an exercise program for example. You can learn the workout equipment, what it does and how to use it; however, you need music to make a successful exercise program. Music motivates. It influences. It enhances performance. Music has individual style. The NAAEI Leadership Experience provides insight into the intangible skills needed by leaders to develop their style, motivate, influence and enhance performance. This is a fantastic course that shows how to play the music for your teams.”

Before the program, participants complete an assessment—the Profiles Performance Indicator—which helps them focus on developing skills and changing behaviors. A post-program assessment will measure training effectiveness. Participants commit to improving a system or process within their company that will lead to a measurable ROI. Participants share their progress by webinar 60 days after the program concludes.

If you’re ready to hit the right notes as a leader, register today for the April 1-2 class in Dallas, or the April 30-May 1 class in Baltimore. The program costs $1,950 per person or $1,700 per person if two or more attend from the same company.
