GoWest Congratulates the 2023 Executive Ready Graduates

GoWest Credit Union Association is proud to announce the 2023 graduates of Executive Ready.

Innovative leaders are crucial to advancing the Credit Union Movement. Our signature leadership development programs empower graduates with the confidence, decisiveness, and strategy they need to shape the generations to come.

GoWest has graduated over 55 credit union senior leaders from Executive Ready in the last 5 years, offering them more skills and knowledge to be successful in the industry.

Executive Ready

Building High-Performing Executive Teams

Graduates experienced a six-month, hybrid program that provided strategic leaders the roadmap to build high-performing, connected, and innovative teams.

It is designed to accelerate executive-level skill development. Using an evidence-based and highly interactive format, Executive Ready leverages thought leaders, conversations, practice, and engagement with peers to increase synthesis and application of advanced concepts and build strategic confidence and competence for deeper influence and impact.

Kelley Mobley, graduate and AVP of digital banking at Vantage West Credit Union, shared how the program also helped bring clarity to her skillset and its best application for her team: “My unique contribution is helping others find their voice.”

Congratulations to the 2024 Executive Ready graduates!
