“Title doesn’t make you a leader.” - Jeff Olson 

Welcome to episode 57 of The CUInsight Experience podcast with your host Randy Smith, co-founder of CUInsight.com. This episode is brought to you by our friends at CO-OP Financial Services. CO-OP is your trusted payments processing partner whose mission is to drive the credit union movement forward.

In today’s episode, I’m speaking with Jeff Olson. Jeff is the President and CEO of The Credit Union Association of the Dakotas. I’ve enjoyed getting to know Jeff over the past couple years and was excited to get him on the show. 

We talk about the Credit Union Social Good platform, how it got started, and how it has evolved. He gives us his insight on how credit unions can stay relevant today, his path to CUAD, and how the inspiration has changed with time on the job.

Jeff says that his leadership style is a combination of inspiration and results, he likens the style to that of a coach. He speaks about what he’s learned when it comes to board relations and what he likes to tell new leaders. His goal of paying it forward and mentoring others was from the type of mentors he had as he was growing up, and a piece of advice from his father that has followed him wherever he goes.

Listen in to this episode with a leader in our movement as he shares the lessons he’s learned along the way. You never know where you’ll find that nugget of knowledge that will be that catalyst to propel you forward. Enjoy!
