A Learning Experience Customized for Our Future Credit Union Leaders
The Judge/Bradley Leadership School offers an excellent opportunity to develop the important management skills so critical to success. Students may choose from either Basic Management or Advanced Management tracks based on prior experience.
The Basic Management track is designed to build skills in the basic roles, responsibilities, and relationships needed for participants to become tomorrow’s credit union leaders. You will develop practical skills in core competency areas that are key to the successful supervision and leadership of others.
This course of study is recommended for supervisors, frontline personnel, and other credit union professionals who have little formal training in effectively supervising the work of others. Experienced supervisors who have learned through “trial and error” without the benefit of any structured training program would also find this track beneficial in enhancing their real-world experiences with proven, research-based supervisory strategies.
The Advanced Management track is designed for experienced leaders who want to keep their knowledge and skills up to – or a step ahead of – the demands of today’s credit unions. It will provide opportunities for CEOs and managerial leaders to build on their existing skills, core competencies, and experience.
This course of study is recommended for experienced credit union leaders – or for individuals who have completed the Basic Management Track.
New this year is an online component to Judge/Bradley. Students in both tracks will complete a CUNA CPDOnline course focused on topics that will come into play during the week of instruction in State College. The online course, which will be completed by student prior to arriving, includes training on proving solving, decision making, scheduling, delegation, teamwork, and process improvement. Students will also learn how their credit union’s mission and core values lay the foundation for day-to-day work activities, and how to ensure everyone is living up to these essential elements of the credit union.
In addition to the core curriculum, a full day is dedicated to current credit union topics. This day is designed to show attendees how to apply the management theories learned at Judge/Bradley to address challenges facing credit unions. Leaders from credit unions around the state are invited to share their personal insight on how to meet these challenges, and experienced credit union professionals will lead breakout sessions on a variety of selected topics.
Who Should Attend? The Judge/Bradley Leadership School is a leadership development program designed to meet the educational needs of credit union CEOs, managers, and staff. The school is sponsored by the Pennsylvania Credit Union Association, in cooperation with Penn State Business Solutions. The faculty members have advanced academic degrees and years of experience facilitating leadership training for adults.
