CONVERSIONS AND COMMUNITY ASSOCIATIONS:
In today’s real estate market condominium communities may be converted from apartments. This class will cover why this makes a difference in how the association operates, roles of the developer and community manager and how the conversion laws will impact association rights.
GETTING UNSTUCK—COMPANY, ASSOCIATION AND LIFE OPERATING SYSTEMS:
Is your company or association stuck? Do you find yourself attending meeting after meeting with no outcomes? Is there a disconnect between what is said and what happens? Do you have great ideas but find they never get implemented? If so, you may be lacking an operating system that addresses purpose, people, proof, problems, process and power. Through a self-assessment we will explore the 6Ps and learn steps that can be taken to address any weaknesses.
CREATING BOARDS THAT WORK:
Using an assessment from The Five Dysfunctions of a Team, this facilitated program explores the basis of organizational politics and board failure. It helps managers identify barriers to effective, functional boards and explores tools they can use to overcome board dysfunctions.
