Are you someone who is aspiring to reach the next level of your leadership pathway, while hoping to one day lead others? We call this stage of your leadership journey “leading self,” which also means you are an aspiring leader. Most likely, you are in the early stages of your career or are restarting and looking for growth opportunities.
You’ve made it to the second path on your leadership journey as a leader of not just yourself, but also other people. We call this stage of your leadership journey “emerging,” which means that with your team beside you, the leadership competencies you are developing have a larger impact to your organization.
You more than likely represent the C-suite or higher level of leadership within your credit union, but keep in mind the journey of continuous learning isn’t over. As the leader of a major department or the credit union itself, you have responsibilities far beyond what you’ve had in the past, but probably not as great as you’ll have in the future
Oversight of the inner workings of the credit union you represent is a major responsibility, and as rules and regulations always change, your continuous learning is essential. The liability, financial duty, and governance you’re accountable for require that you stay versed in the latest information, knowledge, data, and trends. But you’ve earned your place, and you’re up to the task.
