GREENVILLE, SC (NOVEMBER, 19, 2019)- In alignment with the group’s core values, continuous growth through professional development was at the forefront of activities at The Haro Group of Keller Williams during the month of October. Early in the month The Haro Group team engaged in an off-site learning and networking day at the Greenville Chamber of Commerce. Joined by some of their closest business partners, The Sallé Galloway Law Firm and Palmetto Mortgage Group, the three teams heard from local professionals and experts about a variety of topics including the history of Greenville, the city’s burgeoning tourism industry, area Law Enforcement initiatives, and the community service initiatives of several small businesses. Reflecting on the importance of this experience for the team, Founder and CEO of The Haro Group, Haro Setian, said, “We believe that we can best work to help our community thrive when we invest our time learning about where it has been, where it is now, and where it’s headed in the future.”
Coinciding with the professional development of the team as a whole, October provided opportunities for individual members of the team to focus on goals for 2020. Practiced annually, The Haro Group sets aside one business day for its employees to consider and plan personal, vocational, and financial goals that they want to achieve in the upcoming year. Employees then take these goals and outline the practical steps they can take to reach them over the course of the next year. Sharing his thoughts on encouraging intentionality in his employees’ processes for accomplishing goals, Founder and CEO, Haro Setian, stated, “Hope is not a strategy. [Planning] is a conversation about you making things happen through intention and priority. If you don’t choose to work by a priority, then you will, by default, work by other people’s priorities.” The Haro Group of Keller Williams’ investment in the professional development of both the team and its individuals is a cultural distinctive that shows up in its work toward a thriving Upstate community.
