Registration Opens for 2021 Virtual Emerging Leaders Program

Are you a passionate credit union professional ready to make your mark on the Credit Union Movement? Looking to cultivate, nurture, and grow your leadership potential?

Whether you are already leading a team or have just begun to feel the spark of a higher role, DDJ Myers’ award-winning Emerging Leaders Program can help you gain the necessary skills to do just that.

Delivered through various virtual channels, including group learning sessions, executive coaching sessions, core modules, and leadership exercises, the program teaches you how to increase productivity and leadership effectiveness, develop new strategies to address today’s challenges, cultivate sustainable leadership practices, and so much more.

This year’s program, running May 18, 2021 through Feb. 15, 2022, will focus on strategic leadership skills, effective assessment and feedback processes, leadership models, executive presence, and more. The curriculum is made up of high-level training from top presenters, teachers, and coaches who will guide you and your peers through projects and four executive coaching sessions.

During the final session, you’ll design and present an organization or community leadership project that showcases the impact of your newly acquired leadership skills and practices.

You’ll walk away from the program armed with sustainable leadership practices, new ways of thinking, and innovative solutions that benefit both your organization and your own professional development.

Last year’s Emerging Leaders scholarship recipient was Ari Farrell (they/them), Industrial Hemp Program Analyst at Northwest Community Credit Union.

“Receiving the scholarship to attend the Emerging Leaders Program meant so much to me, because I was able to invest in myself,” said Farrell. “I wasn’t sure if I was in the right place in my career, but as it turns out, I was exactly at the right point. Without the help of my peers in this program, the massive amount of learning material, and the coaching guidance, I would not be as confident in my work and using my network (internal and external) as I am now.”

Farrell detailed their experience with the program through a series of articles in Anthem. Click to read part one, part two, and part three.
