Reach Your Potential

The Executive Leadership Program is designed for seasoned commercial real estate executives seeking to sharpen their leadership skills and reach a new level of personal and professional development. During this six-month program, participants will experience the opportunity to reset and focus on the big picture of their leadership, both professionally and personally within a small, close-knit group of industry peers.

Through a combination of roundtable discussions, guest speakers, group assignments, and personalized executive coaching with Kathy Tokerud of HDI, class members explore the challenges that leaders face daily, including: developing and honing personal strengths, creating a shared vision, building trust, managing changing environments, encouraging innovation, delivering results, and communicating authentically and consistently.
