MADISON, Wis. (5/22/13)--The CUNA Leadership Institute, Nov. 3-8 in San Diego, will challenge attendees to rethink what it takes to oversee an organization while helping inspire personal leadership, the Credit Union National Association said.
The new CUNA Leadership Institute will expose attendees to innovative approaches to leadership development through a curriculum specific to the needs and challenges of credit union leaders.
"It's one thing to be told how other business leaders have found success in their roles, but this institute is going to ask more of participants than taking notes and soaking up facts and ideas," stated Kevin Smith, CUNA director of volunteer education. "We'll challenge attendees to discover and develop new approaches to leadership, utilizing their individual strengths and personalities to cultivate innovation and fresh ideas at their credit unions."
Sessions will be led by thought leaders from within and outside the credit union movement. The institute curriculum will involve team-building events and after-dark challenge sessions.
Highlights of this first CUNA Leadership Institute include:
- Calculated strategic decision-making;
- Discerning worthwhile data amidst the clutter;
- Scenario planning and management-team preparedness;
- Disruptive thinking and innovation; and
- Attracting, harnessing and developing a talented staff.
