Classes & Workshops That Inform. Engage. Inspire!

Quite frankly, many of our sessions and conversations start with a “warning.” Content is rated R for REAL. Although there are elements of comedy and entertainment involved, we also speak very candidly.

There are elements of humor and entertainment stitched into each session because we believe strongly that actual learning occurs when participants are “Wide Awake.” We “wake up” the room with energy and activities to keep participants awake and engaged to receive the information, asking questions and self-reflecting.

As much as celebration and involvement are important in our interactions, discomfort and challenge are necessary components when facilitating awakenings, changing behavior, perceptions, results, attitudes, and culture. We ask questions, challenge the participant’s answers, “daily rituals” and industry “norms”. “That’s the way we do it” doesn’t mean there are no better ways. We get people thinking and feeling! Understanding their role, the why behind it all, problem solving, asking questions, developing action plans, practicing and then… we watch the awakenings happen!

I would highly recommend Amy to any management company that wants to empower their team through Amy’s brilliant training style and “spot on” sales techniques. She is one of the best trainers out there in the industry-period.

VSI – Vacancy Scene Investigation On-Site Workshop

The VSI Workshop is a fantastic way to get participants out of the office/classroom and onsite experiencing their property as a resident/prospect. They will be introduced to the “usual suspects” – People, Price, Product and Promotion and will be given case files that will lead them on an accompanied search for clues! Anything that could be contributing to turnover, low conversion ratios, lack of traffic etc. will be uncovered! Each participant will receive an official VSI badge and lanyard and will attend a debriefing after the hunt for evidence to help us crack the case! After all, vacancy is a terrible crime, and it takes an “all hands” approach to SOLVE!

We collect the notes and the case files of participants to compile an official VSI report for the community complete with suggestions and action items as well as photos that are shared by all participants within 10 business days of the event.
