League Leadership Institute

The League's Leadership Institute is designed to help emerging and mid-level managers build their leadership skills to more effectively prepare for succession planning and promotion. 

This five month program includes six workshop-style classroom sessions on a variety of topics and the development of an action plan to extend the experience beyond the classroom. Students are encouraged to partner with their supervisor to tailor the plan to fit their professional growth plan.

The program is offered on an annual basis. Students who complete the program earn the certification of Certified Wisconsin Credit Union Leader (CWCUL) and 4.2 continuing education credits from the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee School of Continuing Education.

  • Top 5 CliftonStrengths assessment
