Event Details

Through PMA’s customized cohort-based transformative leadership development program, participants will:

  • Build self-awareness, emotional intelligence and communication capacities to lead self and teams more effectively
  • Cultivate critical and strategic thinking to elevate their organization
  • Develop executive presence, personal brand and networking abilities to prepare for the next level of leadership opportunities

Developing leaders will participate in this six-month program as a cohort to learn from each other and to create shared experiences and understanding.

The program includes:

  • Insights Discovery Assessment: When people truly understand themselves, their potential goes through the roof. People can only make the best of the strengths they’ve already got, and work on facing their challenges, if they really know what those are.
  • Two In-Person Learning Meetings
    • Intro to Leadership Kick-Off (Two-Hour, In-Person Seminar with Lunch)
    • Closing Session and Graduation (Two-Hour, In-Person Seminar with Celebratory Graduation Reception)
  • Four Virtual Learning Meetings:
    • One Four-hour Insights Discovery Workshop (Virtual)
    • Three Two-hour Virtual Learning Sessions to Discuss Topics Including: Engagement and Motivation; Listening; Feedback and Feedforward; Managing Conflict; Thinking Strategically; Decision-Making in the Face of Ambiguity; Negotiating for the Win-Win; Developing Leadership Presence and Personal Brand…and more!
  • Six 30-minute One-on-One Coaching Meetings: One-on-one coaching provides young leaders with the ability to process new learnings, shift mindsets, and figure out how to apply what they’ve learned. Participants are challenged to think about the “why” and “how” to be more effective.  During these virtual coaching sessions, participants can discuss real-time challenges in a confidential environment to determine new courses of action.  Their coach serves as a sounding board, accountability partner and cheerleader as the participant learns and experiments with new behaviors that support increased leadership capacity.
  • Mid-Term Cohort Happy Hour: Cohort participants will have the opportunity to share challenges and celebrate successes at this in-person happy hour. This informal networking is not only about trading information, but also serves as an avenue to create long-term relationships with mutual benefits.
  • Accountability Partner: Each cohort participant will be assigned a partner to connect with throughout the program to cement learnings, share challenges and brainstorm ideas.

PMA's Leadership Development program is open to advancing leaders within any PMA member company, including property management companies and those companies that provide products or services customarily used in the management, operation or maintenance of multifamily residential or commercial properties.
