This one-day course engages directors in a detailed discussion on risk
governance. The credit union’s core business is taking risk; as a result,
it is expected to have a full enterprise risk management program in
place to assist with identifying, managing and monitoring risk. For the
board, this requires setting the tone for risk appetite and risk tolerance,
then using those tools to effectively oversee risk. This course focuses on
the concepts of enterprise risk management and the board’s role in the
risk framework. Directors who fully participate in this course should
leave with a strong level of risk literacy.
*Required course for Level B completion
System leaders, prepare to delve into the character of leaders. Dr. Mark
Reno has been working with Ivey Business School (University of
Western Ontario) in researching the critical importance of “character”
in senior leadership. In this full-day, three-part workshop, Mark both
shares Ivey’s research findings then impactfully applies them to
“effective business leadership”. You, as credit union and system
leaders, are invited to be full participants on this journey into “the
character of leaders”. Discover your personal leader character strengths
by completing an online questionnaire before the workshop. The
combined results and their significance will be the focus of the first
part of the day; then, Mark leads a unique case study discussion which
profiles the role of an exemplary leader character in strategic and
socially responsible leadership. The day ends with a discussion of the
practical implications of “leader character” for you personally, your
organization and for the credit union sector as a whole. Whether
you’re in an executive, management or board role, you will leave
this workshop with fresh insights into how and how much leader
character matters.
