Leadership development is essential to improving our association and the real estate profession. The Missouri REALTORS®developed the Leadership Academy to identify emerging REALTOR® leaders and encourage them to sharpen their leadership skills so that they may exert a strong positive influence on the future of the national, state and local associations and boards, as well as their profession.

Participants work together during five mandatory retreats that combine individual study, group sessions and project experience. Sessions include identification of leadership skills, team-building exercises, goal setting, personal profile analysis, communication and ethical decision-making.

Program objectives:

  • To identify Missouri REALTORS® who have demonstrated leadership potential and an interest in the REALTOR® organization, its history and goals.
  • To train participants in leadership skills.

  • To motivate participants by:
           * Increasing their awareness of real estate and association management issues and challenges.
           * Involving them in problem-solving activities on issues of current interest.
