New World Credit Union Council (WOCCU) President/CEO Elissa McCarter LaBorde joined us on the show to share what led her to take the helm of WOCCU and how her previous career experiences (nearly all of it revolving around global financial issues) will help her excel in her position at the organization.
Some of the items we discussed included:
women's financial issues to spark real change
aging population of credit unions (attracting the next generation)
financial inclusion critical to financial health
digital transformation helps solve today's problems
multi-generational wealth accumulation to handle life's emergencies
We also talked about some of her leadership philosophies and practices and how those will influence WOCCU, as well as advice from fellow leaders/mentors as she embarks on this position. Her response will surprise you.
A very refreshing, authentic, and impressive conversation with Elissa. And we wish her nothing but the best leading WOCCU and its global efforts for the advancement of credit unions well into the future. Enjoy and let us know your thoughts. Be sure to watch the entire episode below for all the details.
