Filene seeks 40 CUs for CEO leadership study
MADISON, Wis. (8/5/11)--The Filene Research Institute is seeking 40 credit unions to participate in a research study to help credit unions understand and plan for leadership challenges. “Predicting Organizational Performance: The Role of the CEO, the Senior Management Team, and Work Engagement” by Prof. Murray Barrick of Texas A&M University aims to identify personality traits and leadership styles of effective credit union CEOs and senior management teams. The research will:
* Identify the personality traits, types of engagement goals, and leadership styles of highly effective CEOs and senior management teams; * Assess the motivating potential of a credit union’s work environment by measuring management support, high-performance work practices, and methods of task-design by managers; and * Examine how the attributes of the CEO and other senior managers interact with the motivating potential of the work environment to predict the most important outcome: the credit union’s overall performance.
The deadline for participants to register is Aug. 19. Participating credit unions will be admitted to the study on a first-come, first-served basis. Credit unions of all sizes in the U.S. and Canada are eligible. The findings will be published by the Filene Research Institute. “As we navigate this ‘new normal’ economy, leadership that can infuse every layer of the credit union is essential,” said Mark Meyer, Filene CEO. “This study will help CEOs understand not just their own styles, but how those styles trickle down through their organizations.” Participating credit unions will receive specific feedback and access to the final report, even if they are not Filene members. There is no cost to participate. The data that participants contribute will always be private; Filene’s public report will present anonymous aggregate findings.
