How do you lead your lending team into the promise land?

“If you could get all the people in an organization rowing in the same direction, you could dominate any industry, in any market, against any competition, at any time.” – Patrick Lencioni

As a lending manager, how can you make this happen with your lending staff?  There are two primary objectives every great lending leader needs to have in order to build great lending teams that in turn build great lending programs. This session goes deep into these two primary foundations and discusses what is required within each one. If you are a Chief Lending Officer, Lending VP, Lending Manager, or in charge of lending staff, you will not want to miss this session.
