Congratulations to CREW NoVA member, Wanda Stewart, on her recent completion of the CREW Network Leadership Certificate Program
. Wanda is the Founder and Principal at REI Women, LLC. She joined CREW NoVA in 2018 and has been serving on the Communications Committee.
The Leadership Certificate is an excellent way for CREW members at any stage in their career to diversify skills needed to advance their career. The intensive three-session program reminds participants that “Leadership is about how someone else experiences themselves in your presence”. With each session participants focus on key skills needed to support their own success. At the end of each session, participants have a breadth of skills to take away which can be applied immediately to their professional lives.
An added benefit of the program is meeting life-long connections with other women in Commercial Real Estate. From Wanda’s experience, the connection to other Certificate participants was equally valuable to the instruction itself. The program focuses on leadership as well as mentorship and being able to ask candid advice and guidance of CREW members established in their field was invaluable.
The program also affords participants to attend the CREW Leadership Summits allowing for deeper connections throughout CREW Network.
Wanda says that “between the Leadership Course and the Networking within CREW this year, I’ve boosted my confidence to continue to move forward with my own CRE business.”
