Growing Manatee County Startup Prepares Employees for Leadership Roles

PropLogix Leadership Academy

PropLogix, a growing real estate company in the Sarasota-Manatee area, is set to celebrate the first group of employees to graduate the organization’s pilot Leadership Academy.

The program was conceived as a way to develop the company’s existing talent and to provide on-the-job training opportunities to make PropLogix a more attractive place for beginning professionals to grow their careers.

We're only going to keep growing and we'd like to make sure our employees are ready to take on the leadership roles of tomorrow.

Chad Burlingame, Director of Operations

The 16-week course includes formal instruction on communications, public speaking, coaching, and conducting meetings, as well as learning how to give performance expectations and reviews. Bi-weekly classes that consist of lessons, practical exercises, and peer feedback are complemented by one-on-one coaching sessions with the company’s Director of Operations, Chad Burlingame, who spent nine years in a VP role at real estate development giant, KB Home.

“We saw a very unique opportunity to nurture the talent that is already here. We’re only going to keep growing and we’d like to make sure our employees are ready to take on the leadership roles of tomorrow,” said Burlingame.

As a joint effort between the company’s operations and HR departments, the goal is to make this training available to all employees who want to take advantage of it. Through continuing education programs like the PropLogix Leadership Academy, the company is investing in the future of their employees and the business overall.
