AppFolio Leadership Series - Strengthening From Within

Santa Barbara-based company AppFolio joined us in The Narrative Loft for a two-day leadership series this past week. Managers from AppFolio branches around the country flocked to Santa Barbara for not just a workshop, but an experience. Led by Ali Cooper and Elizabeth Barat, the two days involved lectures, self-reflection, and team building exercises, all in order to foster a stronger company vision.

AppFolio is a cloud-based software company that creates complete, easy-to-use programs for property management, rental syndication and lead tracking, and legal management. Their mission? "Revolutionize the way small and medium-sized businesses grow and compete by enabling their digital transformation." The only way this mission can be accomplished is by starting from within the company itself. 

Over the two days the managers worked individually and together to better their leadership skills. They had lectures discussing their strengths and weaknesses, as well as the challenges they face as leaders. There were also team building activities that tested key leadership qualities. Together the leaders laughed, struggled, and learned in an uplifting environment that ultimately strengthened the AppFolio team and community. We look forward to having you back in The Narrative Loft again!
