The CUInsight Experience podcast: Deedee Myers – Why not?

Broadcast date: Monday, October 19, 2020


“Professionals have coaches, amateurs do not.” – Deedee Myers

My guest on this episode is Deedee Myers, Founder, and CEO of DDJ Myers. We talk about leadership lessons learned, the value of coaching, what it takes to be a good leader. We spend a lot of time making sure that we, as individuals and credit unions, are asking the right questions and the next generation of leaders that will take over when it’s time to pass the baton. I hope you enjoy my conversation with Deedee.

Deedee shares her knowledge on keeping her team together during the pandemic and how she has grown as a leader during these challenging times. Deedee believes that current leaders need to make sure the next generation of leaders are ready to step up and tackle some of the challenges credit unions face today and potential obscurities that arise in the future.

Increase Board Performance: A Pragmatic Approach to Identifying the Low Hanging Fruit and Bigger Challenges

Broadcast date: Thursday, October 15, 2020

Presenters: Peter Myers, MSC, PCC

These are exciting times for boards and how they lead! Boardroom conversations have changed in recent months to focus on the immediate priorities of supporting the membership and persevering as an organization. In some ways, the pressure of the global pandemic is highlighting the need for focused skill development, long-term philosophical (re)alignment, and actionable succession plans that focus on development at the governance level. Beyond the urgent lies the strategic opportunity…but where to start?

During this webinar, DDJ Myers will present credit union research findings among eight best-practice governance categories and directors’ assessed technical skills against benchmark requirements. Within the details of the data, micro-habits and skill concentrations are revealed to make a macro-level impact on a self-governing fiduciary body. The good news is, most boards identify low hanging fruit that has an immediate impact on increasing the board’s sense of accomplishment.

Shifting Strategic Workforce Decisions: What Works This Year May Need to Shift Next Year

Broadcast date: Thursday, October 15, 2020

Presenters: Darlene Dumont, DBA; Deedee Myers, Phd, MSA, PCC

The vision for our workforce changes every few months and the industry has a new language and context for understanding the needs of our employees. Unbounded workforces and multiple versions of hybrid work-location models are new to C-Suite conversations across many industries. The workforce conversation is one we all need to be aware of in a continual learning mode. Your DDJ Myers sessions hosts suggest adding the topic of strategic workforce analysis (SWA) to your strategic planning conversations with a fresh perspective, rich open-ended questions, and the knowledge that you will be positively inspired by ideas on caring for employees who care for your members.

CEO Compensation: Approach and Impact

Broadcast date: Thursday, October 15, 2020

Presenters: Deedee Myers, Phd, MSA, PCC

Numerous CEO shifts this year directly impact potentially outdated compensation philosophies related to creating a rewards package to retain and reward a newly hired or promoted CEO. Unfortunately, CEOs are often unsure of their performance metrics, short-term incentives, long-term incentives, and retirement package a year or more after they assume a CEO role. The impact is a lack of clarity on success factors between the Board and CEO, which inevitably transfers and translates to a less-than-adequate clarity of priorities and actions within the executive and management ranks.
