Letter from Jenn

Our continued recognition in the industry and growth as an organization are clear indicators that we are moving in the right direction. It is our responsibility as leaders to actively pursue growth as professionals. We must also be consistent and deliberate in the engagement of our team members to pursue the same growth. Leadership development is not accidental and doesn't happen without intention and consistency. Investing in the development of our team and culture will continue to pay dividends for individuals and the company as a whole. I am hopeful that every Cardinal team member sees those sentiments in action, as the senior leadership of our company is committed to fostering an environment where we can dedicate the time and energy necessary to achieve these development goals.

Today’s Team Is Tomorrow’s Leaders       

We are intentional about growing and promoting our team. As our company has expanded, we have been able to promote from within by investing in our team upfront and building leaders along the way. Our Annual Leadership Summit and Annual Summer Development Program are two successful conferences hosted by Cardinal Group to identify and grow future leaders in the company.

Summer Development Program

Development Program
Cardinal Group is committed to providing young leaders from across the nation an opportunity to develop their leadership skills and gain exposure to the various elements that make our business run. At our Annual Summer Development Program (SDP), we take an all-encompassing look into HQ's operations. We intend for participants to leave with a new perspective on our company, our industry, and the long-term opportunities available to grow with Cardinal.

Our program has had a notably positive impact on participating alumni with multiple promotions, relocations, and Team Member of the Year nominations. We are excited to continue this tradition and give more team members the opportunity to grow and build confidence.

What will your Cardinal story be?

CWoL Training                                                         

CWoL, The Cardinal Way of Leasing, is the industry’s most innovative and advanced lease training platform. This best-in-industry program is rooted in the psychology of sales and the data that produced the most favorable leasing results. We wanted to balance simplicity and depth to give our team members easy-to-remember sales steps with vast knowledge to handle anything that comes at them. This training includes an online course, an onsite and digital training manual, virtual role-playing, in-person training, and an accountability system to up everyone’s leasing potential.

Vision, an annual Leadership Development Conference, has been a dedicated platform for leaders of Cardinal Group to share ideas and partake in a series of discussions, presentations, and panels. Leadership development is not accidental and doesn’t happen without intention and consistency. It is our responsibility as leaders to actively pursue growth as professionals and individuals, and we must consistently and deliberately engage our team members to pursue the same growth.

Cardinal Connect Logo
Based on recent survey data of the team, Cardinal identified areas of opportunities to put together Business Resource Groups to provide professional communities for team members to connect. Women in Leadership, LGBTQ+, Black, AAPI, Hispanic or Latinx, Veterans and Military Spouses, and Working Parents groups have started the initiative, and more will come as the team continues to grow.
