It is no secret that the culture of your credit union can make or break your success. A good culture can help differentiate you from competitors, help you keep talented employees and attract new ones, reach your growth goals more quickly and so much more.While developing an organizational culture can take years to see the fruits of your labor, it really can start with one person – you. And if you manage people, there is one leadership style that I have seen that shuts down even your top-performing employees. I call this type of leader the Culture Killer. There tends to be one of these types of leaders in every credit union and, in a lot of instances, they are actually a really fun part of the team whom everyone loves personally. But as a leader, they focus only on the negative. What hasn’t been done. How that person could have been better. What wasn’t done the way you would have done it personally. These types of behavior by themselves will kill your culture. I have experienced this personally. As a perfectionist and self-proclaimed over-achiever, I was always striving for the stars no matter what project I was working on or goal I was trying to hit. But once I worked for someone who didn’t understand that being a good leader is being a person’s champion, and I felt very quickly like all this person cared about doing was finding things I was doing wrong so they could point them out to me. Conversations often started with, “First of all, this is wrong,” even if I was asking about where we wanted to order lunch. I was repeatedly questioned on why I did something a different way even though the end result was correct. And over time, I noticed myself focusing more on how I could keep this person off my back and less on how I could do a good job in my position. I stopped being a great employee. I stopped taking pride in what I was doing because I was so stressed out about keeping my boss happy. Leadership is an art, and becoming a good leader is just like starting a physical training program; it requires consistent use of a bunch of different muscles and a lot of practice to become fit. Don’t just see your subordinates as a list of things you asked them to do. Remember first and foremost that they are human beings. Recognize the good in what they are doing. Show them you care about them. Give them the chance to screw up sometimes because those are the best learning experiences. Help them get better by clearly communicating your expectations beforehand, and showing them how what they did could be even better next time. 198SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Amanda Thomas Amanda is founder and president of TwoScore, a firm that channels her passion for the credit union mission and people to help credit unions under $100 million in assets reach … Web: www.twoscore.com Details
Right now, a pandemic is raging. Right now, the economy is in recession. Right now, the nation is suffering from four years in which Donald Trump did everything possible to rewind decades of progress and tear at the foundations of democracy.But right now. Right now. All of that has to be set aside. Right now, it is time to shout. To cry in joy and in relief. To jump. To dance. To celebrate.People celebrate on Black Lives Matter plaza across from the White House – Advertisement – Yei Boayue celebrates after hearing several news outlets had projected Joe Biden the next presidentThere may be nothing more emblematic about the 2020 election than this: The call came while Donald Trump was out golfing. Because of course he was. In the spirit of new transparency, America deserves to see that score card.This isn’t just about the character of the president. It’s about the character of America. – Advertisement –

Jana Kramer and her husband, Mike Caussin, aren’t expecting a third child, but they already have a name in mind if the time comes.The couple revealed the moniker during a Q&A session via Kramer’s Instagram Story on Thursday, November 12. The One Tree Hill alum, 36, also shared how the pair chose names for their daughter Jolie, 4, and son, Jace, 23 months.- Advertisement – “Jace. My sweet baby boy. When I found out Jace meant ‘healing’ I knew right then that was his name,” Kramer wrote at the time. “He has been every bit of healing since I found out we were being blessed with another baby. I love you so much baby boy.”Kramer frequently shares photos of her children on social media, but Caussin didn’t agree with the decision at first. The former professional football player opened up about his initial feelings about putting their kids in the public eye during the Monday, November 9, episode of their “Whine Down” podcast.“I wasn’t completely comfortable at the beginning, but I became comfortable with sharing the kids so much,” he explained. “But then I was on board with it, and we never really discussed my reservations around it. But I’m all for it, and that’s our decision as a couple.”- Advertisement – Caussin added that if he and Kramer got divorced it would “crush” him to see their kids on social media. He added that it would be a “big” deal for him to see another man in the photos.The “Whiskey” singer and Caussin — who tied the knot in 2015 — have faced some ups and downs in their marriage over the years. Us Weekly broke the news of Caussin’s infidelity in 2016. The duo called it quits on their marriage and the athlete later entered rehab for sex addiction treatment. However, Caussin and Kramer reconciled and renewed their vows in December 2017.Although their struggles have been in the public eye, Kramer told Us in April 2019 that she hopes that she and Caussin can speak to their children about their past issues.“I definitely think that’s going to be hard, because unfortunately, when they’re old enough, they’re going to Google,” Kramer said at the time. “I personally would like for them to hear it from us first before they Google. They’ll never know specifics. That’s something that we’re not going to go, ‘Oh, your dad cheated.’ That’s not healthy for anyone to know. So it’s just, ‘Yes, this is your father’s addiction, but look at where we’re at now.’”Listen to Us Weekly’s Hot Hollywood as each week the editors of Us break down the hottest entertainment news stories!

New to the role, Johnsonhas been asked to take onmore than most employeesduring their first year onthe job. When asked if shestill wanted to continue topursue nursing, she did nothesitate in her response.“Even though these timesare so hard, I’ve never seenthis kind of teamwork. It’s adifferent set of stakes. You’retalking about people’s lives.Everybody is just trying todo the best they can for theirpatients,” she said. In addition to filling medication requests, Stryker explained that his staff also plays a vital role in providing information. He reports pharmacy staff spend a large portion of each day fielding questions from the community. In Atlantic Highlands, Richard P. Stryker and Scott Eagleton have kept Bayshore Pharmacy open seven days a week, delivering medication right to their customers’ homes. Stryker’s father, Richard C. Stryker, opened the pharmacy in 1964, and the family has served the community for over 50 years. Their newest store, Middletown Family Pharmacy in Belford, remains open as well for curbside pickup. “The best thing I’ve seen throughout this event is, without a doubt, people helping people. At the end of the day, it’ll be the regular people who help everyone make it through this.” “The neighborhood reallyrelies on us. Someone has tobe here. I’d rather it be methan someone else and mypartner is the same way,” heexplained. “At least, with the stormswe lost power, but we knewthey were working to get thatback. Everyone was going tobe OK.” He added that in thissituation, though the lightsare on, everyone is still atrisk. “That’s the terrifyingpart of it. It’s the part thatmakes us nervous.” Pulling off the parkway on a Friday night, the gas station is one of the few businesses with the lights on, though there are no other cars at the pump. Inside, three workers stood a moderate distance apart, with no masks. Thanking them for being able to provide me gas between shifts, I asked if they were scared. They said yes. They told me they know they need to stay open, but they are worried, considered essential when most people are under a strict stay-at-home order from Gov. Phil Murphy because of the COVID-19 outbreak. “The reason we’re staying open is first and foremost we’re part of the community,” he said. “As long as we’re helping the community, we’ll stay open.” Bain proudly explained that he views his store as “neighbors serving neighbors.” “We’re all in the same community, and we have to take care of each other, and that’s what do,” he said. Jamie Jablonowski, BSN, RN, CIC is a registered nurse and public health professional living in Sea Bright She added, “What scares me the most is seeing doctors and nurses terrified to go to work. They see illness and death on a regular basis and aren’t easily frightened.” While health care workers tend to the sick, other essential businesses help keep the community navigating through a new way of life. Frank Bain, owner of Bain’s Hardware Store in Sea Bright has been in business for 25 years. “Nobody alive has ever seen anything like this,” he said. When asked about the distance she needed to travel and the risk involved, she said, “I’m doing this because it needs to be done. Some people can help by just staying home. I can help by going where I’m needed. Simple as that.” Tiffany Johnson of Monmouth Beach is a student at Brookdale Community College, completing prerequisites for nursing school. Four months ago, she decided to take a role as a unit secretary on a fast-paced medical-surgical floor in a hospital. She echoed similar reports of limited personal protective equipment (PPE) and resources as the hospital census of coronavirus patients grows. Bain’s Hardware Store provides everything from plumbing and painting supplies to much sought after puzzles. His store also serves as the village post office. While many are staying in, essential workers head out each day, facing not only the coronavirus but the responsibility of providing services to a community that is now dependent on their presence more than ever. As the daily reports of illness and fatalities continue to grow, what keeps essential workers showing up? Several men and women who have been working since the beginning of the pandemic share their answers: Lauren Fonseca, a registered nurse from Oceanport, is currently working at a testing site in New York. Each week, she takes multiple trains to Long Island. This week she worked several back-to-back shifts, but didn’t forget to pick up toilet paper for her family before making the trek back home. Stryker views his role as making sure his patients are as comfortable as possible. He explained his team works hard to make sure their customers have refills of their medications available. “It relieves stress when they know they are going to get what they need,” he said. Tiffany Johnson donned PPE she is required to wear fo the entirety of her 16-hour shift. Richard P. Stryker said the pandemic draws some parallels to the large storms the community has experienced in the past such as SuperStorm Sandy, but that this situation feels more precarious. While all those interviewed shared similar sentiments of teamwork and community, Fonseca summarized it best. This article originally appeared in the April 9th, 2020 print edition of The Two River Times. By Jamie Jablonowski “I can’t stay on the sidelines,” said Johnson. “Although it’s scary, there’s nothing like being able to help people that are in need of it. It feels good to be doing something positive in a time where there’s so much uncertainty.”
