Leadership 2.0: Enhancing Leadership Skills

The New England Chapter of CoreNet Global is committed to advancing the work of corporate real estate professionals as they strive to fully support, improve and enhance their company business goals and objectives. Many CRE professionals including corporate end-users and service providers, seek to improve their skills and competencies by attending education events, workshops, programs, symposiums, and summits. The Chapter now offers Leadership 2.0, a program that is focused on professional development intended to better position CRE professionals to advance their careers.


What is Leadership 2.0?

The Leadership 2.0 Program provides members of The New England Chapter of CoreNet Global with advanced leadership skills, insights, and tools to lead their respective organizations into the future of work and push their own careers to the next level. The program will expose participants to a range of thought-provoking discussions, self-discovery, and learning opportunities in a small group setting. The Leadership 2.0 Program provides intimate learning and networking opportunities with established corporate real estate executives and best-in-class executive coaches.

Who Should Apply?


You do not have to be a member of The New England Chapter of CoreNet Global, prior to the date of application, however, it is required that you become a member of The New England Chapter of CoreNet Global formally upon selection to the program. If you are a graduate of the Young Leaders Professional Development Program*, you must be a 2022 graduate* or earlier.

*It is not a requirement to have also graduated from the Young Leaders Professional Development Program.


You should apply if:

  • You have +/- 10 years of experience in the commercial real estate industry or are currently working in corporate real estate with +/- 10 years of relevant work experience
  • You are currently responsible leading people and/or have a strong desire to lead
  • You’ve reached a career plateau and are ready to enrich your skill set in order to grow
  • You believe that we never stop learning!

At the end of the program, the participant will “graduate” and will receive a Certificate of Completion. The cohort will also be recognized at the Annual Meeting typically held in March. This is a unique opportunity to learn from top leaders in a small group setting. We can’t wait to see what you can achieve!

Time Commitment and Program Fee

Participants must actively participate in six (6) sessions (participants must attend all in-person sessions) and a final case study presentation to be completed over a six-month period in order to graduate from the program. Programs are planned to be held in the afternoon for 2-3 hours at host companies who are current Sponsors and Corporate Partners.  The program fee for Leadership 2.0 is $3000 and is due prior to the first session.
