SAL Advanced Leadership Program

  • “The trainer had me on the edge of my seat listening.”
  • “SAL Provided insightful information about each individual rather than generalized information”
  • “Practical knowledge presented in a memorable fashion”
  • “SAL was most helpful, for me, in improving my leadership skills. Helpful in understanding how to communicate clearly and the different styles of communication”

The SAL Advanced Leadership series and retreat moves current and aspiring leaders through a track that began with emotional intelligence coupled with communication skills; focused those communication skills to coaching a team; and finally, with driving the vision. This program is designed for executives, department heads, and aspiring leaders with several years of experience leading a team. The speakers are experts in the field of organizational management, leadership development, and executive coaches.

SAL was named after Sally Lentz-Crouse, who was a leader in the multifamily housing industry and a pioneer in the real estate industry. To keep Sally’s legacy alive, in 2008 the Indiana Apartment Association began an annual leadership retreat that has now grown into an extensive leadership series that helps multifamily professionals become innovative, nuturing visionaries.

These workshops layer leadership skills and build skillsets. The first two workshops begin with laying the foundation to success and understanding the necessity of emotional intelligence. The last two explore practical applications of managing others and how to become the most effective leadership in a world of constant change.
