Texas REALTORS Leadership Program Class 7

I was recently selected to take part in the Texas REALTORS® Leadership Program (TRLP).  TRLP offers participants the opportunity to meet other motivated leaders and to share an intensive learning experience that focuses on community issues and leadership skills. The program provides participants with lectures, seminars, guest speakers, group discussions, and leadership exercises that address vital issues affecting REALTORS®.

Along with the other 19 members of Class 7, I attended a kick-off retreat at the Lakeview Camp and Conference Center in Waxahachie, Texas. This two-day retreat was packed with team building exercises and some solid information about the REALTOR® family and leadership.

The highlight for me, was the High Ropes Challenge Course. In many ways it reminded me of going through the Air Force Basic Training Confidence Course except this course required total teamwork to complete the challenges. It was fun to watch a group of strangers come together as a team to accomplish the tasks.

Of course I was 18 when I went through Air Force Basic Training, I’m over 50 now and slept very well after spending about 5 hours on the High Ropes course!
