Alicia Williams from Locations Estate Agents in Gladstone, Queensland talks about what she wants to get out of Transform Masters, her leadership ambitions, and her key takeaways from ARPM 2017.
Alicia: Hi. My name is Alicia Williams from Locations Estate Agents in Gladstone, Central Queensland. I’ve been in real estate just over five years now and have a background in accounting and finance.
Q. What do you like about your local area?
Alicia: The thing that I really enjoy about Gladstone is that it’s on the coast, great for families. We’re not just a mining town and there’s a lot of prosperity for Gladstone in the future.
Q. What are your leadership ambitions?
Alicia: The thing that I want to take most out of Transform Masters is to learn so much from coaches who can look at my situation and think, “Okay. This is what you can do differently. You can tweak this here.”
Q. What do you want to get out of Transform Masters?
Alicia: My leadership ambitions are to have a really, really good look at what I’m doing, what I’m learnt so far, and what things that I can change, not only to value myself in the future, but to benefit my team because their personal growth and professional development is gonna be integral to the success of locations.
Q. Favourite ARPM 2017 speaker?
Alicia: At ARPM, my favourite speaker was Andy Lark. I really, really enjoyed what he had to say in regards to technology and potential disruptors with our industry.
Q. Most valuable takeaway from ARPM 2017?
Alicia: The biggest thing that I took away from ARPM was the need to focus and to declutter my life of a lot of noise that’s out there at the moment. It’s great to be all things to all people. But sometimes, it is actually to your own detriment and to the detriment of the business in your team. So for me, it’s going back, really looking at what I’m doing, how I’m spending my time, and making sure that it’s not just a dollar cost productive activity, but that there’s some real value. That’s important for me. I’ll be refocusing and also looking at what Andy Lark had to say and then seeing how that’s going to change our business and where we go to from here.
