PARK CITY, UT - Since 1988, Ernest F. Oriente and the PowerHour team have worked with the owners, leaders, executives, CEOs and presidents of leading property management companies around the world. And have felt that by working directly with these industry leaders, they knew that it would have the biggest impact of creating dynamic and long-lasting change within their companies. PowerHour property management clients have utilized PowerHour’s guidance and coaching to make shifts that have enhanced the performance of their property management teams, improved the success of their marketing plans, and helped them to make better hires throughout their organization. The PowerHour coaching approach and methodologies have also given their property management clients a step-by-step blueprint to increase their focus on new business development and in many cases helped them position their property management companies to make expansion acquisitions or to sell their companies at a premium.
So at the request of our property management clients I would like to invite you to join our weekly PowerHour Leadership Academy tailored for property management leaders who want to focus on GRACE [Grow Revenue & Control Expenses]. And for this academy to ultimately be successful for our property management members, it needs to be done in a weekly format.
Why weekly? I believe that much like a finely-honed kitchen knife, you want to keep leadership skills sharp through weekly attention and consistent focus. If you don’t keep a knife sharp, it gets dull, rusty and doesn’t function at peak potential. In our 32,400+ hours of coaching property management leaders, I have seen the power and results from working with leadership teams every week on a particular area of focus. Maybe the focus is how to handle a tough occupancy challenge, or learning more about a new industry competitor, or reviewing business development plans — whatever the focus is, it needs to be fully addressed, given timely focus, and then assigned specific action until the goal is accomplished.
Mirroring the success our property management clients have enjoyed over the years, as a member of our PowerHour Leadership Academy you will receive a weekly audio leadership newsletter with one particular topic related to GRACE. Each audio leadership newsletter is very compact and will take about 15 minutes to listen to… covering a key point about GRACE, specific action steps to take, and recommendations for what’s needed for follow-up and follow-through. For example, one week’s focus on GRACE may be the power of LinkedIn and its importance for your new business development focus. It will explain…What does your LinkedIn profile look like? Which groups should you join? What should you do within these LinkedIn groups to raise your new business development visibility? How will you earn more property management fees by making your LinkedIn group members further aware of your industry expertise?
After listening to the weekly audio leadership newsletter, you will then join our PowerHour Leadership Academy that meets every Tuesday at the same time of day, for our PowerHour “open mic” conference call platform. This open mic platform allows you to interact with me and other property management leaders related to the GRACE topic of the week. During weekly open mic discussions — questions are asked, examples are shared, tools and resources are created and academy members are able to delve into deeper levels of explanation about the GRACE topic for the week.
Keep in mind that as with all of our leadership programs, we never work with competing property management companies in a given city. Therefore, any property management company currently part of our PowerHour Leadership Academy never has to worry about us permitting any of their industry competitors to become our clients — they’re simply not allowed to join the program. We proudly provide exclusive access to our PowerHour Leadership Academy to only one property management company per city.
As a follow-up to the weekly PowerHour open mic discussions, you will also receive industry articles, relevant and related checklists tied to GRACE, suggested webcasts related to the GRACE topic of the week, and encouragement to add a post to one of 106+ Industry Knowledge discussions in our property management LinkedIn group.
In all of the PowerHour Leadership Academy programs, our property management clients capitalize on our 26 years of experience working with more than 2,000 companies in eight time zones around the world. Our property management clients also draw on our expertise for building SmartMatch Alliances, wherein they learn (among other things) a no-nonsense process for maximizing business development and alliance results. Because we so believe in the importance of alliances, all academy members are sent a complimentary copy of our SmartMatch Alliances book. Plus, as an academy member, you will complete a complimentary leadership assessment that will generate a 23-page report outlining your specific leadership strengths, weaknesses and steps for leadership improvement.
The purpose of our PowerHour Leadership Academy is to help you succeed by giving you strategic advantages focused on GRACE. When we meet on Tuesdays for our PowerHour open mic discussions, you will learn from not only what I have to share, but also from great ideas offered by other property management members. For instance, someone in Vancouver might share what they’ve gained from LinkedIn, and then someone from San Diego will tell their experiences, then someone in London will add their success stories. What results is a collective synergy of ‘best practices’ focused on GRACE — whether it’s the power-use of LinkedIn, strategies for gaining business development referrals, best-practices for the selection of industry vendors/suppliers, guidance on how to leverage your marketing E-newsletters, which property management conferences to attend, coaching for developing strategic alliances — the list goes on and on. All of these topics (and more) — will relate to the powerful learning provided to our academy members on a weekly basis.
Let me leave you with a motivating “Tip From The Coach:” Remember, success is not a matter of luck, an accident of birth or a reward of chance. Success is a matter of decision, commitment, planning, preparation and execution. Success doesn’t come to you; you go to it!
