Emerging Leaders Virtual Series

Emerging Leaders Virtual Series
Are you currently in a banking leadership position and looking to grow your leadership skills? Are you on the path to leadership? Are you interested in growing and developing in your career as a community banker?  If you answered yes to any of these questions, then this Emerging Leaders Virtual Series is meant for you!

Presented by the Wisconsin Bankers Association BOLT Section (Building Our Leaders of Tomorrow), in partnership with the Arkansas Bankers Association, Michigan Bankers Association, New Hampshire Bankers Association, and Ohio Bankers League. 

Each session will provide attendees with presentations from national speakers and also incorporate time for Q&A and smaller peer group discussions.

Session 1: Leading for Tomorrow, Today! - August 19
From technology changes to COVID-19, true leadership for tomorrow must happen today. Regardless of your position, leadership is about operating with integrity, adapting to the needs of others and modeling what’s expected. In this session, we will craft a vision for our industry, understand how core values guide us, explore leadership principles and review the results of strategic execution in community banking. 

Session 2: Tough Conversations in the Workplace - August 25
Conflict is inevitable — in work and in life. Managers must address performance issues, and colleagues with competing priorities must figure out how to work together. These situations call for having tough conversations. Hear how to conduct tough conversations, build communication skills and enhance relationships — leading to better business performance. Identify underlying differences in work styles, goals and power dynamics to change the way you view conflict.

Session 3: Leading Change: Moving from Surviving to Thriving - September 1
Our goal as leaders is to set up our organization, customers and team members for success. Change has always been inevitable, but the recent events have significantly disrupted that goal and introduced challenges beyond what most of us have ever had to navigate. There are real barriers to move our organizations from surviving to thriving. What do we do? We jump into problem solving. But what if we are solving the wrong problems? To be an effective leader requires diagnosing the entire situation, to regulate the heat of those around you and to experiment quickly.
