Hear From Your Credit Union Peers About the LSCU Leadership Journey

The League of Southeastern Credit Unions (LSCU) has put together a trio of leadership opportunities so you will become a better manager and supervisor to the next generation of credit union leaders. Hear from your peers about their experience with the LSCU leadership journey through our testimonials below.

First, join the Emerging Leaders Academy, where you will dive into cutting-edge strategies, harness the power of innovation, and empower emerging leaders to spearhead change.

But it’s your team that really experiences the rewards of your being developed as a leader.“I have several testimonials from those who have been to a class I have led – here is the most recent comment from a leader over credit union branches: “Absolutely loved your session today, thank you so much for joining us! I spent lunch chatting up the leaders and taking the temperature of the room, we have a very excited team!’”

Then, participate in Leadership College, where new and existing leaders refine their skills, exchange insights, and mold the future of credit union excellence.

The class provided insightful and practical approaches to leadership. I loved the no-nonsense approach and being a transparent coach. The instructor was knowledgeable, engaging, and funny, which made the class enjoyable. The interactive group hubs we were placed in allowed for collaboration, fresh ideas, and an opportunity to meet amazing people within our fields. I highly recommend this class!”

These created a supportive community of professionals.

“I appreciate the opportunity to interact with the instructors and peers from other credit unions. I greatly value the knowledge and insights I gained during my time at the Executive Institute, and I believe the program will have a substantial positive impact on my career and my organization’s success.

“Attending the League of Southeastern Credit Unions’ Executive Institute was an incredibly enriching experience. Learning the concepts in person made the material come alive, and the feedback from peers added depth to my understanding. Interacting with professionals from credit unions across the Southeast not only broadened my perspective but also created a supportive network.
