Your NAFCU Weekend Reading Pile

Compiled by Anthony Demangone, Powered by NAFCU

Happy Friday, my friend.

I don’t say this enough – we work for you. So, if you need anything – just say the word.

Anthony, that isn’t helpful. What are some examples?

  1. We can do a Washington update at a board meeting.
  2. I’ve done leadership workshops for credit unions.
  3. We’ve done BSA training for boards.
  4. The “Risk of Irrelevancy” presentation has been well received.

And the list could go on. If you are in a jam or need something, reach out. If we can’t do it, we’ll try to find someone who can.

Now, on to this week’s reading pile!

  • 5 high frequency indicators for the economy. (Calculated Risk)
  • Signs of softening. (The Big Picture)
  • Was that the bottom? (AWOCS)
  • Five qualities of real heroes. (Leadership Freak)
  • When we give away our day, we give away our future. (Godin)
  • I firmly believe that the world would be better if every organization trained their people on how to write better emails. Here’s a FANTASTIC article that could be the foundation for a great team meeting. (Let’s Grow Leaders)
  • Customer service teams are a brand’s best ambassadors. (Smart Brief)
  • Becoming a destination workplace. (Entrepreneur)

PS: Briggs and I have picked and English Premier League team to root for - Nottingham Forest! They won relegation, so we feel like we’re on the ground floor.  And with a nickname like the Tricky Trees, how can you not love that team?!
