You know the moment when you volunteer to do something, but you don’t fully know what you have gotten yourself into? You think to yourself “no problem – how hard can it be?
The 2017 SYL Leadership Retreat took place August 21-23 at Shekinah Re-treat Centre. This year’s event host-ed 40 young leaders representing 16 different organization from the Sask. Credit Union System.
We are a group of fun, innovative, ambitious individuals whose mis-sion is to empower others to grow and succeed while bringing forth innovative, forward thinking ideas that will benefit our organization and communities.
The first SYL Twitter Chat is coming soon! Hosted by Team MarketAbility, finalists from CU Advance 2.0, we want to start a conversation about celebrating Credit Unions and Cooperatives.
And the winner is… TEAM CU BY DESIGN!!!! Congratulations to all of the finalists including Creative Crew & MarketAbility!
I knew exactly what I wanted to write about when my turn came around. It’s something that I have been battling with for the past few years – balancing work & life.
I just asked my 8 year old “do you know what a journal is for?” and his answer was “for writing your secrets in”. Kind of a stereotype from movies about teenage girls but maybe he’s not that far off.
When I think of people I respect and admire, they all share similar traits. They’re authentic, giving, present, grateful, and have a balanced life outside of their work. Another thing they have in common is their ability to handle and embrace change pragmatically, head-on, and with grace.
In a society where money and various tangible rewards seem to be significant drivers both personally and professionally, how can credit unions and other co-operatives effectively motivate their employees without increasing year-end bonuses?
The wonderful world of podcasts is a largely untapped learning resource. Already use them you say? Well then help us add to our list! Have no idea what a podcast is or how to listen to them?
SYL has an exciting year coming up and we’d like you to help us spread the word!
