From Home Furnishing Business
HFA’s Inaugural Leadership Institute Held at LSU
The four-day program was developed with Louisiana State University (LSU) Executive Education and was designed to prepare the most promising leaders to help them take on key positions and move them into a leadership mindset.
The inaugural program includes two manufacturers and 17 retailers from top-100 retailers to single-store operations. Attendees work with companies that are located across the country from California to New York and Ontario, Canada.
The in-depth, highly personalized program is focused on the core attributes of running a retail home furnishings operation—strategic thinking, planning, and execution. The executive business sessions were taught by professors from the LSU Executive Education program.
Association CEO Sharron Bradley says the institute addresses a key initiative for HFA of making home furnishings matter by providing educational opportunities for members so they’re always learning how to take their businesses to the next level.
