Credit unions – Invest in your emerging leaders!

first_img2018 has been a remarkable year, one that I will never forget. I’ve personally visited 49 credit unions and participated in 17 conference/educational events this year. I’ve learned a lot from very diverse credit union cultures, and been exposed to a wide-range of missions, visions and strategies. I’ve spent time with inspiring credit union leaders and participated with humble hands on service projects. In a year packed with so many great experiences, there’s one consistent experience that rises to the top and has left the greatest impression – respect and admiration for the many impressive emerging younger leaders.Leaders worthy of a great movementSpeaking on credit unions, Edward Filene said, “It is a great movement, worthy of great deeds, deserving of great loyalty.” He was right then, and his comments ring true now. This year, my interactions with so many young credit union leaders convinced me that we have the right emerging leaders who are prepared (and preparing) to accomplish many great deeds to ensure the future of our movement.These younger leaders are energized, and exhibit the right balance of philosophy and business acumen needed to lead a human-focused financial cooperative movement. They are bright and community-focused, and they’re not only convinced they can make the world a better place – they are investing blood, sweat and tears to make it a reality. I’ve seen them in action at many different levels ranging from intense strategic planning to selfless acts of service, such as feeding the homeless (2018 CUDE Workshop). They are collaborative, competitive and willing (anxious, even) to take the right risks to break up the status quo. I’m impressed, and I have to say that in my 35 years of credit union service, this group demonstrates the greatest potential yet, and they are worthy of our attention, support, development and mentorship. I’m very optimistic they will elevate the credit union movement to a higher, more purpose-focused and relevant level.Invest in tomorrow’s leadersThere are lots of quality leadership development opportunities in the credit union space, such as the Northwest Credit Union Association’s (NWCUA) Emerging Leaders Program, the Credit Union League of CT’s Connecticut CU Executive Program, local chapter groups (yes, they still exist) and wow – you should visit the Mt. Hood CU Chapter in the Portland, Oregon area. It’s a collective “dream team” of emerging younger leaders. And of course, the Cooperative Trust’s wildly successful Crashers program. Examples like these and others create great learning opportunities and experiences that prepare younger leaders for the challenges and opportunities they will face. I always recommend CUNA’s Management School, the National Credit Union Foundation’s Credit Union Development Educators (CUDE) program, and WOCCU’s Young Credit Union Professionals program to eager-to-learn and growing professionals.There are so many opportunities. Mentoring is another opportunity for young leaders to pursue, and for seasoned veterans like me to offer.I recently discovered a great book for young, up-and-coming leaders who desire to make the most of their credit union career and to better prepare for leadership. The book is titled, “Don’t Sabotage Your Career: 11 Power-filled Steps to Succeed,” written by Connie Miller, CEO of Icon Credit Union in Boise, Idaho. It’s filled with excellent advice, and I highly recommend it for young up and coming credit union leaders.Serious (and hungry) up-and-coming leaders will actively seek out and pursue learning opportunities and mentorship. For those of us who occupy the corner offices, it’s important that we provide enthusiastic development support when our paths cross.Why it mattersIf the credit union space is to confront the future challenges and opportunities on the horizon, we need to invest in and develop a generation that has what it needs to define the dynamic issues and execute the right strategies. We must foster credit union leadership, and provide tomorrow’s leaders with an engaging job experience that prepares them to keep the credit union movement alive and well.To all those new and emerging leaders I interacted with this year – thank you for engaging and inspiring me! 54SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Scott Butterfield Scott is the Principal of Your Credit Union Partner, PLLC.Your Credit Union Partner (YCUP) is a trusted advisor to the leaders of more than 100 credit unions located throughout … Web: Detailslast_img read more

TKR continue dominant streak with 10th win

first_imgThe Trinbago Knight Riders once again showed that they are a formidable squad, not just an XI, as even with four changes, Sunil Narine still rested and Colin Munro injured, they put together a superbly planned and executed performance to bowl out the St Kitts & Nevis Patriots inside 19 overs and chase their modest target inside 12 overs, thus completing a perfect 10 for 10 record in the league stage of Hero Caribbean Premier League (CPL) 2020.Kieron Pollard countered Rayad Emrit’s decision to bat first by putting himself in at bat-pad for both Akeal Hosein and Sikandar Raza’s first overs. Chris Lynn did hit Hosein for a Hero Maximum over mid-on, but two balls later he failed to clear deep midwicket even with a favourable breeze and a short boundary. After three overs, the Patriots were 13/1.Evin Lewis chewed up deliveries, still scoring at only three an over even after sweeping Hosein for six, and it was not a surprise when he hacked at Raza and gave keeper Tim Seifert an easy catch off the top-edge. Lewis faced 19 dot balls in his 24 ball innings, and contributed to a Powerplay in which the Patriots stuttered to 27/2.Ben Dunk too fell to a top-edge, Pravin Tambe taking an outstanding catch at short-third man off his fellow leg-spinner Fawad Ahmed. Tambe got a wicket of his own, skidding one on to trap Joshua da Silva LBW, and Fawad trapped the promoted Imran Khan in similar fashion for a duck. Emrit and Denesh Ramdin did at least break a run of four straight overs with a wicket falling, but at halfway the Patriots were 36/5, and every over had been bowled by spinners on a perfectly serviceable pitch.Ramdin showed intent to resist, smashing Fawad for a flat Hero Maximum over the short leg-side boundary, but in between that and the previous boundary the Patriots had lost 4/15 in 35 balls. Tambe’s third over went for just four, and in the 13th over the fit-again Ali Khan came on for the game’s first over of pace and struck third ball, Ramdin finding Darren Bravo on the long-on boundary. Tambe bowled out going for just one, leaving the Patriots 64/6 after 14.Anderson Phillip’s first over went for just two, and Fawad picked up two wickets in his last over to finish with his best ever Hero CPL figures. If Emrit was unlucky to edge onto pad and see the ball roll onto the stumps, Colin Archibald’s stumping was all due to Seifert’s poise waiting for the moment the foot lifted. Alzarri Joseph swung a Hero Maximum over Hosein’s head, but soon after picked out Phillip at long-off, and the Patriots were 75/9 off 17.A leg bye took the Patriots past their lowest ever Hero CPL total, 75 away to the Jamaica Tallawahs in 2016, but Phillip soon put the innings out of its misery. It was the first innings in Hero CPL history where a team did not hit a single four.Tion Webster, in contrast, hit two fours off Sheldon Cottrell in the first over of the chase. With Narine and Lendl Simmons rested, Amir Jangoo got another game and started calmly, not allowing many dot balls and giving strike to the fluent Webster, who hit Imran for two more fours to take the Knight Riders to 27/0 off four overs. Jon-Russ Jaggesar was tight in both his overs, but Webster and Jangoo both hit Joseph for fours to take the Knight Riders to 42/0 off the Powerplay.Webster was mostly content to hit through rather than over the field, but did launch Joseph onto the grass bank for a Hero Maximum to take the Knight Riders opening pair past 50 – remarkably, the first time they had done so for the first wicket all season – but Jangoo fell to Emrit next ball to end the stand at 54. Seifert joined Webster, and the Knight Riders coasted to 63/1 at halfway, needing just 15 more to win.Seifert finished the innings in style with a Hero Maximum, consigning the Patriots to just three points from the group stage, and emulating last season’s perfect league stage from the Guyana Amazon Warriors to march undefeated into Tuesday’s semi-final against the Jamaica Tallawahs. A team with two world-class spinners and Andre Russell can never be discounted, but the Knight Riders machine will take some stopping.last_img read more
