WCI Communities awarded People First certification
BONITA SPRINGS, Fla. (March 20, 2012) – WCI Communities, the Bonita Springs-based lifestyle community developer, homebuilder and services provider, announced that it has completed the 12-week People First leadership program.
To commemorate the accomplishment, a celebration was held at Pelican Preserve’s amphitheater in Fort Myers for the 140 leaders and managers who participated in the training. On hand were People First CEO and Founder Jack Lannom and Master Trainer Dan Philips, who arrived to congratulate the group and present the certification award.
“Going into this program I believed it would give our Associates a way to refocus on the needs of co-workers and customers,” said David Fry, WCI Communities president and CEO. “I believe we received much more than that. We discussed individual and shared values and studied different communication and learning styles. Members of our team have told me that these and other skills learned in the training had an impact on them personally as well as professionally.
“This training is a small part of our broader strategy to differentiate the company by providing our Associates, Residents, Members and prospective buyers with premium experiences that increase referral activity. It was a positive experience and we are proud to say that WCI Communities is a People First certified organization.”
WCI joins a long list of companies who have adopted the People First philosophy such as AT&T, Yahoo and UPS.
