Management and Leadership Training

The community banking landscape is constantly changing, and the pace of change is accelerating as a result of recent financial events. These changes require continual updating of your officers’ knowledge base, if you expect these individuals to be prepared for promotion in to senior leadership roles. In previous generations, grooming of future executives was accomplished by through correspondent bank management training systems, where individuals were exposed to all the major departments and allowed to function under close supervision to obtain banking experience. Sadly, that option has disappeared and is no longer generally available to community banks.

The shrinking pool of trained and experienced community bankers may be the most significant, time sensitive threat to the long-term survival of community banks, especially those in rural areas where attracting talent is a challenge.
