Howard Hanna Real Estate Services is pleased to announce that two of their Pennsylvania agents have graduated from the LeadershipPAR program, sponsored by the Pennsylvania Association of Realtors®. Just recently, Rita Sumney and Jodi Diego were honored at the LeadershipPAR graduation ceremony, which capped off a year-long program that focuses on a host of leadership development topics.
Throughout the program, nationally recognized speakers address issues like team-building skills, public speaking, collaborating with volunteers, government affairs, and how to improve and expand leadership styles. The program also enhances skills to better serve the community and the real estate industry.
Realtors® who go through the LeadershipPAR find it incredibly worthwhile. It helps them develop their leadership skills with a group of their peers and prepares them for future leadership opportunities in their communities.
