That is a very cool idea Leigh. Are you looking for a private forum or an open one? I have a multifamily trainer group on Linkedin that has a bunch of trainers as members. Let me know what you are looking for specifically and I would be glad to help.

@Susan

We have been toying around with the idea for the fall some time. Maybe you and I can get together and brainstorm over the concept.

I would love to gather some information as well. I am going to send an email to those above and see what we can do to help each other. My company is midsized as well and they have not had a trainer before, so, I need to create a program for implementation. I welcome any help or suggestions!

I like this discussion and it is a great idea. Many of my peers and myself, professional speakers in the industry, are happy to share many of our tips and tools. My website has course handouts in PDF format from many of my most popular courses. You can feel free to use these if they are helpful, and I am just an e-mail away for advice or questions.

Suggestion: Everybody meet at the Atlanta Apartment Association July 9th Social Media session - it goes from 9:00 til noon. It will be a hand's on work group and will provide a terrific meet and greet time for all. It's at the Cobb Galleria. Call Kimberly Cable at the ATL Apt Office for details and we can begin our insider bonding then. Give me a shout if this works or not. This email address is being protected from spambots.

Kimberly Cable at AAA is 770-518-4248.

I think the response last year showed how the training directors are focused on some
support and feed-back.I have been in the multi-family housing profession for over 30 yrs. I have seen markets come and I have seen them go. Currently July 2011 we are experiencing some high filled communities. There are challenges to both markets and also to markets we have never experienced.

My company is a national mystery shopping company based in Maryland. We also give Fair
Housing workshoppes as well as basic leasing workshops with role playing video taped.

If anyone would like the basis of what we do here is my web site.

Hey Jonathan,
After you train the trainers what then? How do you proceed to second base? Do you do
staff evaluations? better known as mystery shopping?

My company has been in business since l993. If interested please visit our web site.

I just taught an emotional intelligence class at NAA and one of my resources was a book called Emotional Intelligence 2.0

Very helpful for leadership and team building skills.
