In part three of our leadership series with Cardwell Group's CEO Jim Cardwell, we discuss the importance of "filling the CEO skills gap" for credit union leaders. What exactly does this mean? It actually focuses on building today's executives as true leaders that have all the tools available to lead your organization over the next couple of decades.
It also means how to work effectively with a credit union Board, getting clear about your role as a CEO, leadership change vs. managing the transition, and much more. Jim explains how all this will provide would-be CEOs with all the tools to hit a homerun in an executive job interview -- leveling the playing field with already experienced CEOs looking for a new position.
In addition, we look at the the three ways to lead: dependent, independent, and interdependent. Find out their differences and which one is you and why.
Once again, Jim Cardwell nails it with his vast insight and experience in the executive training and placement field for our industry's future leaders. After all, he's placed nearly 80 credit union CEOs over the years, so he has many gold nuggets of info and advice up his sleeve.
