How to Convince Your Boss to Send You to Leadership College:
Let them know about your interest in learning opportunities
Leadership College trains you on a variety of tangible and intangible competencies including character, culture, coaching, communication, leading change and execution. The skills can be applied to a wide variety of areas in your job from project management to strengthening your working relationship with peers.
Explain how the training opportunity will benefit your company
The program provides hands-on methods to demonstrate the skills covered in the curriculum in both day-to-day and big-picture operations at your company. You will also have the chance to network with participants from other credit unions, discuss real-case scenarios, and learn proven strategies to show up as a leader in your role every day.
Express your desire for growth
Leadership College focuses not only on professional growth but also on personal growth to align you with values that set you up for success. Expressing your commitment to the company and desire to develop within your role makes your supervisor want to invest in you.
