96 April 2018 RISMedia's REAL ESTATE by Liz Dominguez M ost corporate retreats and seminars focus on career development and networking. While important, these two elements are pieces of a larger puzzle in which personal development and team-building also play a role. And that's exactly what Coach REALTORS® decided to focus on during this year's outing; Best Week Ever, a five-day series of events for Coach sales agents that focused on three fundamentals: body, mind and career. "It seems like all companies host a 'kick-off event' or meeting to start the year (we have done this, too), but engagement from the sales agents is low and meetings can be perceived as boring or stale," says LP Finn, COO of Coach REALTORS®, family-owned since 1954. "Meet- ings don't always appeal to the entire workforce. Each person has a different idea of what is fun and worth- while. Also, our firm covers about 60 miles from east to west across two counties of Long Island. Having events at different locations across two counties allows more people to take part." The festivities kicked off on February 5 with a presen- tation, "Become a Listing Machine," by Darryl Davis, mo- tivational business speaker and coach. "Monday morning's 'Become a Listing Machine' with presenter Darryl Davis was attended by 250 agents. The 16 other events had groups ranging in size from 40 to just 10 for the escape-room nights. Overall, there were 980 registrants/attendees across all events," says Finn. The events blended relevant career development courses, such as financial planning and videography tu- torials, with team-building activities ranging from paint nights and escape-room sessions to fitness classes like yoga and rock climbing, which was Finn's favorite activity. The events finished off with an awards dinner at Oheka Castle, followed by a breakfast the next morning with keynote speaker Gary Guller, world-renowned moun- taineer and professional motivational and inspirational speaker. {Trending} BEST WEEK EVER: Coach REALTORS ® Event Emphasizes Body, Mind and Career LP Finn, COO of Coach REALTORS®, at a rock-climbing event during Best Week Ever.
