Amplifying Efforts:
Tools for Driving a Developmental Culture

Facilitated by Jackson Hataway
      Pre-approved for 1.25 general credit hours.

High performance companies typically share a key differentiating characteristic across industries...they are development-centric. They rely on operational processes that continuously improve the competencies and proficiencies of staff while simultaneously producing dynamic results. They understand that having a bench of talented, capable leaders is critical to long-term success. And they know that size doesn’t matter, but rather scale, efficiency and growth all result from employees who can and will do more. For credit unions, building this type of culture means using tools and systems that encourage development through the work, not separate from the work. Beginning at the frontline and working all the way up to the board room, learning and development has to become a central part of doing business, and it has to be driven by the efforts of leaders at every level. This engaging and entertaining session on building a developmental culture will provide leading industry examples and cutting edge research, to amplifying efforts and make work accomplishments matter more.
