Now, more than ever, our organizations need leaders who are both competent and compassionate. But how do you negotiate that balance? Lean too far toward accommodation and you run the risk of being dubbed as a push-over, easy to manipulate and unlikely to take a stand; venture too far toward tasks and output, and you risk being labeled as uncaring, overly demanding, or even a bully. The goal is to balance relationships with tasks. It is possible to be both a good boss and a nice one.

This interactive session will review common misconceptions about leadership and help you identify the strengths and skills you bring to your role as a leader. Using polls and breakout sessions, you’ll explore some of the misconceptions of leadership today, share challenges you face, and gain valuable insights to help you build trusting relationships, maintain accountability, and help your employees thrive.

Some of the topic areas we’ll discuss are:

  • The Art of Delegation
  • How to create accountability in a virtual world (hint: your team wants you to lead them)
  • Why Self-Awareness really does help you as a leader
  • Where should your focus be as a leader?
  • Recognition, appreciation, gratitude, and thanks

What Are We About?

The purpose of this council will be to focus on the development of leadership qualities in women.  We want to help them become better businesswomen, speakers, and leaders in their communities as well as in the real estate and property management industries. While our focus will primarily be on women and women’s development, men are encouraged to attend women-led trainings, webinars, and breakout sessions to gain knowledge and insights on working with the women in their businesses and how they can help them grow as well.

The day to day operations of running a property management company are changing, including how we collect rent, maintain properties, do inspections, etc. With these changes, we can start to embrace the unique qualities women bring to property management.  This is not solely about gender. There is power in connecting with one another; men and women alike can benefit from connecting. By connecting with one another we can shine a brighter light on and improve this industry, which is the main goal of NARPM and any of their members. Women tend to have fewer role models and mentors and therefore can feel as if they need to conform to the traditional leadership model which can sacrifice her individuality and strengths.  This is easily remedied by simply growing those who are ready to step into the leadership areas they were created for.
