Emerging leaders in the credit union industry are heading to CUNA Emerging Leader Institute, this Dec. 2-4 in San Diego to understand their unique managerial style and become more confident, effective leaders with the guidance of leadership experts. Participants will build a strong foundation in management core competencies to make more impactful decisions that grow their team, organization and the credit union movement. This year’s speakers were selected for their ingenuity and experience delivering engaging learning experiences that energize leadership.

“It Is extremely impactful on your growth as a young and/or emerging leader,” said 2018 attendee Courtney Binette, collections supervisor at ST. Mary’s Bank. “There is so much to learn and so many people to learn from, not just the instructors, but the other attendees as well.”

Before the event, attendees will take the Strength Deployment Inventory assessment. Then, once the event begins, they will dive into the results to get a better understanding of their leadership strengths and motive-driven behaviors.

After discovering their unique leadership style, participants will dive into the daily responsibilities of leadership and participate in hands-on activities to practice incorporating their conflict resolution preferences to better coach, maintain a high performing team and achieve strategic goals during turbulent times.
