Executive Training

Below you will find the presentations used at MSIC’s MSIC’s Tuck Executive Leadership Program.  In furthering our mission to strengthen the credit union movement on September 7th 2011, MSIC hosted our first ever credit union executive leadership program.  This four day event brought leaders in the credit union movement from across Massachusetts together to build an understanding of what it will take to lead the industry in these uncertain times.

Partnering with Dartmouth College’s prestigious Tuck School of Business, MSIC brought in several Thought Leaders of the financial services industry.  These professors from the Tuck School if Business, actively participate in the global financial debate and many find themselves splitting time between their scholarly work at Tuck and the many national and global financial regulators in both Washington D.C. and abroad.  For credit unions to succeed in this challenging environment, leaders need to understand and wisely respond to economic and political forces.  This program delivered the tools necessary to achieve this.

Areas covered included:

Consumer Behavior, Risks and Opportunities for Consumer Finance
Professor Punam Keller engaged the participants in a fast-paced presentation-discussion of essential questions about how to create and communicate value and guided the group towards principles they could immediately put into action.

Developing a Strategic Mindset and Communication in Times of Change
Professor Paul Argenti used case discussion on common challenges and a round-table discussion among all participants in the program about their business model, the major challenges to their company, and future plans.  He then went on to develop a connection between strategy development and execution using strategic communication.

Global Economics and Finance: How to Lead Amidst the Crisis?
Professor Matthew Slaughter, co-author of "The Squam Lake Report” spoke on the importance of developing a framework for understanding many of the key global economic forces facing credit unions and their members; and then how to use this framework to help lead more effectively.

Why Smart Executives Fail and What We Can Learn from Their Mistakes
Finally Professor Sydney Finkelstein considered how credit union leaders stumble, and how to develop systems to avoid such mistakes.  Through learning from the experiences of others the group explored how leaders can facilitate strategic innovation.
