THOUGHTS ON LEADERSHIP: WATCH THE SHORE

By Gino Blefari

This week my travels found me at home, starting off with my typical Monday WIG calls. On Tuesday, I was in the HomeServices of America CEO Leadership Meeting, which includes CEOs from 31 states across the country. I was also able to virtually visit the Czech Republic and Poland the following day when I presented during two Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices global alignment sessions for prospective brokerages. Today, I delivered 4DX Tune-Up to the team at Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Kay & Co in London then joined the Insider SPOTLIGHT live cast. Before COVID-19, I would have never been able to be with leaders from 31 states one day, then Zoom to Prague and Poland the next and wind up in London the day after. It just wouldn’t happen. Now, because we’re all at home and connected digitally, we can be anywhere at any time.

By Gino Blefari

This week found me at home, kicking off the week with my typical Monday WIG calls. On Tuesday, I participated in the weekly Berkshire Hathaway Energy Presidents meeting and presented 4DX Tune-Up to the leadership team at Houlihan Lawrence.

I always say I love my job mostly because of the people I get to do it with – even if we’re working together while separated by computer screens. And it’s not just the mindset of our team members that makes my job so fun but also their mantra; they are truly UNSTOPPABLE. (The word happens to be the theme for the Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Sales Convention 2021 and it’s a perfect fit.)

This week my travels found me at home, starting my Monday with my normal WIG calls. On Tuesday, I had my weekly Berkshire Hathaway Energy Presidents meeting followed by a HomeServices of America Virtual Team Gathering then the Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices 2021 Creative Pitch by Corporate Magic. On Wednesday, I attended the Explosion 2020 Virtual Event and presented 4DX Tune Up to the teams at Kentwood Real Estate and Edina Realty and Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices North Properties. Today, I was a guest on Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices CEO Chris Stuart’s Forever Forum Live Cast.

As I spoke with teams across the country (and world), I noticed a reoccurring theme. Sales teams frequently want to know: How do you tactically and tangibly drive growth? One way to drive growth in a sales organization is through contests.
