Leadership vs Management Workshop

Exceptional leaders are key ingredients in growing a successful credit union. To create successful leaders, we must first determine what leadership skills our managers need and what management skills they must possess. Defining and sharpening those skills are necessary for complete, companywide success. Essential leadership skills often range from effectively projecting a collective goal to addressing low employee morale. This workshop will help guide leaders within your organization into becoming exceptional leaders by:

  • Preventing the leadership issues that all new managers face—and how to overcome them
  • Discovering and developing your own, personal leadership style
  • Revealing your role in team performance and how to maximize it
  • Uncovering how to build on the leadership strengths you've identified and shore up your weaknesses
  • Learning how to communicate like a pro
  • Unlocking the secrets of the do’s and don’ts when going from peer to supervisor
  • Confronting challenges before they become real problems. Ignore this at your own peril.
  • Identifying best practices required for strategic success at an individual, functional, and organizational level
  • Understanding the crucial differences between being the leader and being the boss
