Join the Dallas Chapter of Credit Unions for an evening with CUNA Mutual Group Vice President of Sales, DeLania Truly as she presents "Are You Leading People or Herding Cats?".
No matter what position you hold at your credit union, you are a leader.  Yet, so often we get caught up in management practices that overtake our ability to truly lead our teams and people.  DeLania Truly will lead us through a discussion that focuses on key principles of team/people leadership that can help us strengthen these skills and become more impactful.  Come network and enjoy a very informative presentation with plenty of great food, drinks and door prizes.
