Young Leader Leadership Development Program


Developed by New England Chapter Board Members, the Leadership Development Program was launched in 2015. The program consists of a series of educational, personal, and professional development sessions throughout the year, which are led by top Real Estate Executives and a professional career coach.

This one-year program brings together a maximum of 12 young professionals who spend the year together on a journey of personal and professional enrichment.  The Program leverages senior members of the CRE community as faculty as well as outside professionals in the area of professional development.  It focuses on elevating young professionals’ understanding of the various disciplines that make up the corporate real estate field and, through personal one-on-one coaching, allows the young leader to better understand his/her strengths and areas for improvement as well as how to enhance their personal brand and leadership skills. At the end of the program, the class will “graduate” at our annual Awards of Excellence dinner in November 2017.

Applications for the 2019 program are now open. Click here for the application. Applications are due by Wednesday, November 28 by 5:00 pm via email to Debbie Crooks at  Contact CoreNet Global New England Chapter Executive Director Trish Fields with questions.
