(May 26, 2016, Las Vegas) – FirstService Residential, the leading HOA management company in Nevada, hosted a training session focused on transforming volunteerism to leadership for homeowners’ association board members on May 19, 2016. Maurice Talley, corporate trainer for FirstService Residential in Nevada, provided the attendees with the tools and guidance to take their volunteer roles to the next level.
Homeowners volunteer their time to serve on their HOA board and work to achieve their communities’ visions. Talley presented the “Four Quadrants of Leadership” to highlight the different levels of leadership needed to serve an HOA board. Each quadrant details the various personality traits and leadership skills one must hold to fit at that level. In addition, the attendees were provided self-assessment tools to see where they currently stand as leaders, and were given a detailed explanation of each of the 10 essential traits of community leaders and high-functioning HOA boards. 
“Volunteering to serve on your association’s board is one thing - effectively leading your community is another,” said Steven Parker, president of FirstService Residential in Nevada. “As the leading community management company, we feel it is our duty to provide the necessary tools and services to assist our volunteer board members in achieving the missions of their communities, and in turn, enhancing the lifestyles of their residents. Our frequent board member trainings and symposiums are just one example of the value-added tools that we provide to achieve this.”
FirstService Residential provides various training and development opportunities throughout the year for HOA board members in Northern and Southern Nevada.
