Credit Union Creating Future Leaders through Unique Mentor Program
“Financial Center developed G2 because we saw a real opportunity to align the goals of our employees with the goals of our credit union,” said Mark Moulton, Financial Center Administrative Director and G2 program developer. “G2 helps our employees envision a long-term future with our organization and motivates them to succeed. It was designed to lead change management and foster creativity among our staff members. All of these things are good for our members.”
While the program is available to any non-management staff member who desires to further his/her career at the Credit Union, employees must go through a rigorous application and interview process and be selected to participate. G2 combines written coursework and quarterly presentations focused around communication, leadership, interpersonal relations, and performance management with practical one-on-one mentoring meetings, as well as participant think tank meetings. G2 team members are also required to get involved with industry networking organizations as well as volunteer organizations.
G2 is in its first year of implementation and already has 16 employees either participating in the program or serving as a mentor or leader.
