Congratulations to these Leadership Academy graduates

leadershipHomeServices of Nebraska recently completed its first full program of the HomeServices of America Leadership Academy.

Graduates of the Leadership Academy include Woods Bros Realty agents Miranda Watson and Matt Hardesty and Larabee School of Real Estate Director Andie Young.

The HomeServices of America Leadership Academy is a program designed to enhance general leadership abilities and strengthen skills of selected, high-performing individuals at the local level. This multi-session program was developed by leaders across the HomeServices network and has been successfully implemented in a variety of markets.

Here’s what the graduates had to say about the program and their experience:


Matt Hardesty
Matt Hardesty

HomeServices Leadership Academy was a wonderful crash course in leadership skills & running a business.  I believe the course content would be invaluable to current or aspiring managers and agents alike, and it was a wonderful opportunity to get to know colleagues a little better.  I would highly recommend this course for anyone with interest in leadership or just looking to boost their business.


Miranda Watson

Great dialogue with real life business application and solid ideas is hard to find anymore, but with this collaborative group of leaders, it was easy! Fun! Enlightening! So much to look forward to as we work together with new goals for a bright future for these companies!


Andie Young
Andie Young

The leadership academy program through HomeServices was a learning opportunity about the value of quality leaders and their impact on an organization, but it was also a conversation starter about our own company and the ways we, as leaders and future leaders, can impact the day-to-day touch that the organization has on our colleagues and the community. Through the class, a common bond was found in people who want the best for the company now and in the future and strive daily to uphold the values that make HomeServices the company that it is.
