The Virtual Emerging Leaders Program provides the next generation of credit union leaders with the knowledge, community, and tools they need to cultivate, nurture and act on their leadership potential. Participants will be armed with the skills to increase productivity and leadership effectiveness, cultivate sustainable leadership practices, effectively communicate strategic objectives, and so much more.
The Virtual Emerging Leaders Program provides participants with a unique opportunity to explore their leadership potential and develop holistically.
The 2022 virtual program will feature a special emphasis on the Leadership 360 performance evaluation – a tool that helps leaders benchmark their current leadership and inform their developmental path moving forward. A highly certified International Coach Federation-credentialed coach will deliver the curriculum through various virtual channels, including group learning sessions, ongoing cohort “buddy” calls, core modules, and exercises specifically developed to advance participants’ leadership skills. In addition, participants will use tools to track their development throughout the program to better measure and support their success.
Whether you are already leading a team or have just begun to feel the spark of a higher role, the Virtual Emerging Leaders Program will give you the tools to cultivate your leadership presence and reach your leadership potential!
