Exclusively for credit union professionals.

 

Leadership isn’t a theory, 

title, or position.

Leadership is the ability to practice, day by day, the principles and behaviours that enable you to positively influence others. When faced with a myriad of different situations and personalities (including our own), it can be a complex and challenging journey.

The Certificate in Applied Leadership (CAL) provides a clear path forward to help you be a more effective leader. The only online, cohort-based leadership and coaching certificate program exclusively for credit union professionals, CAL helps leaders build skills, impact, confidence, and career growth.

Taught by accomplished credit union executives, all CAL courses blend the latest in leadership thinking and neuroscience, with opportunities to apply learning in the workplace and learn alongside other CU professionals.

In this fast-paced, complex world, CAL can help you solve workplace challenges and foster an inclusive, high-performance culture and be a leadership force for good.

 

We’re pleased to share that 100% of participants would recommend our programs to others, and our completion rate for our instructor-led programs is 96%.
