The Banking Manager in the Now Economy

We have “The Now Economy” and must learn to maneuver effectively so we grow our business all the while continuing to meet emerging client needs. Bankers all over the bank are delving into the PPP program, answering questions, and processing loans that they never anticipated being involved with. We know that we must continue to help our clients meet their needs outside of the PPP program, and we need to consider how to forge ahead for the remainder of this year and into the next when hopefully our US economy begins to recover.


We play a key role, both as coach and as a business development professional in banking. This seminar series focuses on how the bank manager can take care of the needs of today, while keeping an eye on the future. It’s challenging and exciting to be a banker today, knowing we have the responsibility to grow our team and listen to our clients’ needs and position our products and services to help our clients achieve their dreams.


No matter what the title, you play a key role. You manage a team that is the face – the image, the impression, the brand – of the bank. Your team is expected to handle the personal and business finances of your customers, cross-sell, and refer appropriately, all with a smile and without mistake. This program gives you the skills to improve team productivity – through coaching, motivating, and accountability. You will enhance your skills in how to supercharge bank performance that increases staff professionalism, customer satisfaction, and customer loyalty. Course Cost:  $550.
