University salutatorian discusses importance of maintaining service-oriented mindset

first_imgHaving traveled abroad for three summers working in Shirati, Tanzania, and Masaka, Uganda, serving as the co-president of GlobeMed and conducting research through the Kellogg International Scholars program, class of 2019 salutatorian Annelise Gill-Wiehl fulfilled her belief that “we’re here for more.”An environmental engineering major and international development studies minor, Gill-Wiehl said she initially wanted to study water infrastructure, but after taking classes within the major and traveling abroad, she began to see the decencies of electricity.The summer after her freshman year, Gill-Wiehl said she went to Masaka, Uganda, on a Kellogg internship to work for a local agricultural training center, founded by a woman who saw agriculture as an opportunity for families to rise out of poverty. Over the course of her summer there, Gill-Wiehl organized workshops on water conservation and environmental protection and built a water runoff collection tank, but she said her experiences with her host family sparked her passion for energy.“Because they spoke such limited English, I bonded with them by cooking,” she said. “It became one of my favorite things, cooking with my host sister, cooking with my host mom, learning the traditional foods, but we did it all on fire wood and charcoal stoves.”The next summer, she traveled to Shirati, Tanzania, to investigate household energy usage, and the next year, she returned to design a pilot study, training local community members to use gas stoves to work with the households in their own neighborhoods to transition to clean fuel.“The purpose was to really instill a behavior change that’s facilitated by the community itself,” she said.Her involvement abroad extended beyond her time in Uganda and Tanzania, as Gill-Wiehl also served as the co-president of GlobeMed this past year. Although Gill-Wiehl never considered a career medicine, she said she was drawn to the manner in which the club approaches outreach.“It was founded on the principle that, as college students, we don’t know what’s going on in rural Laos,” she said. “We’re working in partnership with them to understand what’s actually going on there and what their needs are, and I really loved that example of international development and the idea of being in partnership with organizations and communities rather than being a white donor that’s telling them what to do.”Gill-Wiehl said she knew she wanted to work in poverty and justice before she came to Notre Dame, and two of her favorite books — “Mountains Beyond Mountains” by Tracy Kidder and “Santiago’s Children” by Steve Reifenberg — have helped her order her time at the University.“They’ve really formed how I could look at how my career could be, understanding that larger purpose and opening my eyes to international development and a preferential option for the poor and giving me the language around structural violence,” she said.Outside of academics and research, Gill-Wiehl said she loves running, traveling and drinking coffee. “I love having conversations over coffee,” she said. “I think that it’s magical how it brings people together. In Starbucks, it’s nice to just eavesdrop on the great conversations between students or professors and students. So yes, I’ve been known to beat everyone out on coffee consumption for sure.”Reflecting on her time at Notre Dame, Gill-Wiehl said her Notre Dame education has extended far beyond academics.“I’ve found the heart of my passions and the purpose of those academics in my research in my extra activities,” she said. “Prioritize your academics, but prioritize the activities that really inspire you and bring you energy and life.”Gill-Wiehl said she intends to maintain the passions she cultivated at the University long after she leaves campus, and she hopes her fellow graduating seniors will do the same.“We’re here for more, and we shouldn’t lose that sense that we’re here for more just because we aren’t at Notre Dame,” she said.Tags: Class of 2019, Commencement 2019, university salutatorianlast_img read more

Succeeding in a changing market

first_imgMarket on rates.  Rates and pricing is not what will set you apart.  Your WHY is what sets you apart. Remember that it isn’t about loans and checking accounts. Try to be all things to all people.  This means your credit union may serve a large field of membership, but there is a smaller group of consumers within that market that you are best-suited to serve. Look at marketing as an expense.  Done effectively, marketing has one of the greatest potentials for killer ROI of anything else your credit union can do from an execution standpoint. Look at members who have bad credit as undesirable.  A LOT of the population has less-than-stellar credit and it doesn’t mean they have necessarily been careless with their finances.  Job loss, medical bills, divorce, death of a spouse…so many circumstances lead to poor credit. Additionally, serving these “riskier” borrowers is a great way to solidify lifelong relationships for the credit union AND earn a higher margin.  Look at employees as something to be tolerated.  Your employees are the number one biggest asset your credit union has at its disposal.  They are the people who form relationships with new members and take care of your existing members.  If they are happy and empowered, that will translate to the member experience.Make a merger your succession plan.  Mergers have their time and place and are often necessary, but it shouldn’t happen without careful consideration of the impact to members and employees.  Make sure the credit union has done all it can to foster talent and growth within the credit union so a succession plan is evident years in advance.Operate with the mindset of “this is the way we’ve always done it.”  As Tony Robbins said, “If you do what you’ve always done, you’ll get what you’ve always gotten.”  If you want to get somewhere different, somewhere better, you have to do something different to get there.DO NOTHING!  Some credit unions are so scared to try something new and fail so they sit back and do nothing while their credit union literally shrinks before their eyes.Give up.  The work you are doing is helping credit unions stay the superheroes of the financial services market.I love you credit unions.  Keep doing the great work you are doing in your communities, with your employees and for your members.   If you are anything like me, you love lists like Top 10 and others because they are easily digestible and great for immediate takeaways.  During a recent conference keynote, I gave a session on helping small credit unions learn how to succeed in a changing market. But let’s face it…the market is changing and it is affecting ALL credit unions.  In the presentation, I listed several DO’s and DON’Ts in adapting to a changing market that I believe are relative to every credit union, regardless of size.  And I am sharing them here…starting with the Don’ts because, well… I like to focus on the positive so that is the second in this series. As you read this list of DON’Ts, remember that you, credit union executive, are reading this article because you want to learn how to grow your credit union and serve members.  You love this industry, and you want credit unions to succeed. I LOVE credit unions as well and, while you might like what I have to say on this list, I am here because I share your love of credit unions and passion for helping them succeed.If you want to succeed in today’s market DON’T:Look at big banks and other credit unions to see what they are doing and copy exactly what they are doing.  You aren’t staying true to your mission and brand story with this strategy. 5SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,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: Detailslast_img read more
