Leadership at heart is little more than a matter of individual courage. But courage is no small matter, is it!
It forces us to choose between conscience over convenience, principle over popularity, action over apathy.
Those type of decisions most of us would prefer to "put off" until... [put off until when?]
On Halloween - October 31, 1517 - four hundred and ninety nine years ago, Martin Luther made a choice to object to the sale of "indulgences"(favors and influence before God!) to parishioners by the Catholic Church, in which he was an "insider" - a devotee, a priest, and a scholar. Luther wasn't exactly shy about it either! He nailed his list of objections (the "95 Theses") directly to the entrance door of All Saints' Church in Wittenberg... and in doing so changed the Catholic Church and the world for the better. Speaking truth to an established order gone rogue... leadership... courage .
NCUA over the last decade appears to have earned a reputation for regulatory "indulgences" which will continue to tarnish the credibility of the Agency and all credit unions if not addressed.
But do we have among our leadership any...
... Martin Luthers?
[ If so, isn't it about time "to nail it"?]
