Latest CUES Whitepaper Helps CUs Develop Behavioral Success Profiles

MADISON, Wis.— What traits do strong, effective credit union leaders possess? 

Talent development leader CUES, along with partner TalentTelligent, set out to find out by conducting a Leadership Success Profile Survey designed to determine which qualities credit union leaders most need to possess to successfully guide their organizations into the future. 

The survey results are now available in the whitepaper, Key Competencies For Credit Union Leaders, which is free to download. 

“Key Competencies For Credit Union Leaders offers invaluable insights for industry leaders to consider when they are developing their talent management strategies,” said Christopher Stevenson, CAE, CIE, CUES SVP/Chief Learning Officer. “It is our hope that the whitepaper will help to shape a new generation of credit union leaders.” 

Survey respondents represent credit unions across a wide array of asset sizes whose participation helped achieve these research objectives: 

  • Identify a mission-critical behavioral success profile for credit union leaders in the next three to five years. 
  • Cultivate talent management insights, using research-based practices, to inform strategies at both the industry and credit union level. 
  • Stimulate further talent management exploration by credit union leaders to ensure effectiveness and relevancy for the credit union industry. 
  • Provide open-ended questions and further considerations for survey participants and readers to consider in their own context. 

Download the whitepaper now, and discover what the participants said about roles-based practices, research-based insights for the roles of leaders, behavioral-based practices, research-based insights for the practices of leaders, and the implications of the study.
