A training solution to build a high-performance culture at your credit union.

Build a leadership force for good.


For credit unions investing in talent growth, the Certificate in Applied Leadership from eLeadership Academy is the only easy-to-administer, online training solution that blends the latest in leadership and neuroscience insights with social learning to equip your leaders to foster an inclusive, high-performance culture for good.

While most leadership and coaching training tend to be theoretical, we provide practical models, coaching, and “micro-actions” so learners can practice and apply new insights right away. The programs are cohort-based, creating an opportunity to network and learn with other credit union leaders.

Our faculty are accomplished CU executives with extensive educational achievements in leadership, coaching, and NeuroLeadership. 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%.


We don’t just train leaders.

Courses can be taken in any order or as standalone learning experiences. To earn a Certificate in Applied Leadership, participants must complete one of each of the following:


8-Week Program, 4 Hours per Week

Effective leaders have both a strong backbone and an open heart. They have the clarity and courage to handle tough situations, and the empathy and emotional agility to create a climate of inclusiveness and belonging.

Bite-sized content and weekly exercises create immediate opportunities to boost team engagement and resilience. 



Monthly Program, 2 Hours per Month

eLeaderHUB enables busy CU professionals to continually improve their leadership skills. Participants gain access to monthly live webinars, micro-training, worksheets, tools, self-assessments, and a community of like-minded professionals.

8-Week Program, 4 Hours per Week

Coaching fosters accountability, inspires action, and builds confidence in others by holding them capable. In eCOACH, leaders learn to shift from being a problem-solver to becoming a facilitator-of-problem-solving. The program includes models for coaching and leading difficult conversations. The second half of the program includes workplace and triad practice as well as 1:1 mentor coaching.  



Self-Paced Courses, 4 Modules, 2 Hours Per Module

A learning platform
that gets results.

All eLeadership Academy programs follow a brain-centric coursework model to ensure that the learning sticks.

Theory is important, but without practice, it has little impact on day-to-day leadership effectiveness. Our programs are designed to support a 70/20/10 learning model where leaders practice what they’ve learned and build confidence with new leadership techniques.
