Condominium and Homeowners Association boards are often associated with thoughts of stress and conflict. Bearing that in mind, premier residential property management company KW Property Management & Consulting is partnering with South Beach studio Innergy Meditation to hold the inaugural “Stress Management for Condominium Boards” workshop on Wednesday, November 8 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
The alliance with Innergy is part of a series of innovative programming KWPMC has launched with the motivation to enhance the lives of the residents it serves and provide them with skills that go well beyond sound oversight of their Association. Last month, the company announced a multi-pronged rebranding effort highlighted by the launch of a brand-new website (www.kwpmc.com) and company tagline – “We don’t just manage – we enhance.” The new mantra reflects KWPMC’s operating philosophy of going above and beyond the scope of property management.
At the upcoming workshop, KWPMC and Innergy will aid people in coping with the challenges and pressures of serving on a Condo or Homeowners Association board through Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) techniques.
Called “Stress Management for Condominium Boards,” this event will give attendees healthy ways to deal with financial pressures, upset residents, maintenance headaches and everything else that comes along with life while serving as a volunteer on an Association Board of Directors. The event has three experienced panelists to lead the discussion:
- Shelly Tygielski, MBSR Instructor and Mindfulness Expert
- Rosa de la Camara, Attorney, Becker & Poliakoff
- Tim O’Keefe, Director, KWPMC
“It’s important for people to realize that stress can have a negative impact on both work performance and crisis outcomes,” Tygielski said. “Through this workshop, I provide attendees with practical tools to help them alleviate stress, learn how to respond instead of react and begin to manage stress in a healthy and positive way.”
“Sometimes when people think of volunteering to serve as an officer on their Condo or Homeowners Association, they think of added stress and pressure that they may be inviting into their lives,” said O’Keefe. “But volunteering on a Board can also be really gratifying and we hope that by providing stress management techniques we can help to enhance the lives of our residents and board members well beyond their communities. These are tools they can incorporate into all areas of their life. We are excited to launch this series of programming.”
