DDJ Myers Partners with Northwest Credit Union Association for 2013 Emerging Leaders Program

PHOENIX, Arizona, May 10, 2013 – DDJ Myers, Ltd. is pleased to partner with the Northwest Credit Union Association (NWCUA) to develop and deliver the 2013 Emerging Leaders Program – an engaging three part training session designed to educate and support leaders from credit unions located in the Pacific Northwest.

 The first session launched in March, and will be followed by another session in both June and October, culminating with a Leadership Project Presentation in October. Graduates of the Emerging Leaders Program can expect to develop new thinking and innovative solutions enabling them to take more effective action, build the practices of an authentic leader, and begin to fully reach their leadership potential both in their credit union career and personally. Each session is designed to focus on strategic leadership, building a leadership presence, and the study of various leadership models. The Leadership Project in October allows students to apply their new skills in support of both their credit union and community.

Nationally renowned speakers and trainers come from the DDJ Myers Advancing Leadership Institute and include Deedee Myers, CEO, Mark Haeussler, President, Peter Myers, VP, Susan Geear, Executive Coach, and Stephani Stephens, Faculty.

“The Emerging Leaders Program is a unique leadership opportunity designed to maximize the effectiveness of both future and current credit union leaders. Students will learn skills that translate into greater productivity within their respective credit union,” said Deedee Myers, CEO, DDJ Myers, Ltd.

Responses from attendees at the first session in March was very positive, “Amazing, intense, and empowering are just a few words I would use to describe this week! The speakers were incredibly experienced and educated, while gracious and compassionate. The program and content were well thought out and comprehensive! This week has changed my life! I can’t wait until next time!”

Said another attendee, “Of all the personal development programs I’ve participated in, this one yielded the most insights and surprises. Everything was presented in a straightforward, unassuming way, but the tools and people combined perfectly to create dynamic conversations. Would recommend.”
