The Charleston Trident Association of REALTORS® just announced the graduates of the 2015 class of The CTAR Leadership Development Program. Sixteen local REALTORS® completed the program, which is designed to provide those with interest in taking a leadership role in the Association and their community the education and training to enhance and develop their leadership skills. Two dunes properties agents from our Isle of Palms Office, Ginn Maiers and Susan Petty, were among the graduates.
The two-month program includes three sessions, each focusing on a different aspect of leadership development: teambuilding, communication, community activism and effective leadership. Speakers for the various sessions include local business and community leaders like Cindy Grosso of Charleston School of Protocol and Etiquette, Mt. Pleasant Town Councilman Mark Smith, Chris Zoeller of the Post and Courier, CTAR President Matt DeAntonio and President-Elect Michael Sally. The program’s keynote address was delivered by Elizabeth Colbert Busch at the final session.
“We designed this program to help our members develop their leadership and communication skills, which will help them not only if they choose to pursue a leadership position with the Association or in the community, but also in their day-to-day business. We provide the opportunity for our members to learn from those who have achieved success in real estate as well as other industries” said Wil Riley, CEO of CTAR.
