Collaboration is a topic that is brought up at many leadership meetings, whether it is through Peer Group, or even an SYL hosted event.
The Saskatchewan Young Leaders hosted their first webinar of 2014 with Rachelle Brockman, Principal of Eureka Experience on the topic of “Leadership Communications.” During the webinar Rachelle focused on developing techniques and strategies that will allow you to express your authentic self with skill and confidence.
Most people near the starts of their careers aren't typically thought of as leaders in the workplace. Not only do they inhabit a low spot in the office hierarchy and lack experience and skills, but also many are too timid and insecure to assume a leadership role. But with the right attitude, an observant eye and a desire to learn, any young professionals can prevail early on.
Your growth as a leader starts right now, wherever you are at this very moment. You don’t have to be president of a billion-dollar company to be a leader. You can begin with your present relationships, your family and friends, your community associations, your school or your place of work.
Sask CU Advance was designed by Young Leaders for Young Leaders, and the Saskatchewan Young Leaders couldn’t be more proud of our young leaders who stepped forward to submit their innovative ideas to move the Saskatchewan Credit Union system forward!
Currency Marketing, our partners in the Sask CU Advance competition, have released this video that shows how to make credit unions relevant to young people. This video is a manifesto about what it's like being young, thoughtful, hopeful and in control.
