Are your partnerships mutually beneficial?

first_img 22SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Joe Winn What do you get when you mix auto loan programs with a desire to help others? Well, approaches that make a difference, of course. So what do you get when … Web: credituniongeek.com Details Depending on the audience, I have a variety of secret lives. Here, my secret life is that of a credit union marketing partner. When working with CUs, I’m a secret ninja and industry blogger.Now you’re wondering about the ninja part.As a strategic partner, it is in everyone’s best interests to work closely together. A credit union is never “just another client”, whereas, we strive to never be “just another vendor”. Some of our relationship partners are real friends, and discussions can evolve beyond weather and sports into family. We are in it for the long term to help every partner (and individual staff/member) exceed their goals.This is often not how we are received.We understand. All of us have been in a business relationship that felt one-sided up-front or started out great, then fell apart over time. How can we know which to trust and which to cast away? Better off just keeping them all on a tenuous balance: Work together, but don’t share enough to give them any “power” over you. Ensure the contract protects you, then protect your members just the same.Thing is, I can’t disagree with anything in the previous paragraph. Ensuring every member’s safety, privacy, and satisfaction is top priority, and nothing should ever compromise this approach. Yet your partners are how you expand member offerings, and any barriers you place can affect the member experience. Where’s the balance?As part of our offerings, we assist credit unions to place landing pages on their sites linking to a partner portal for their members. The linked site is owned by a third-party, but contractually covered for privacy, due diligence…you name it. Despite this, some credit unions still pop up large warnings when navigating to the pages; we call them speed bumps. Not a great way to inspire confidence for your members.None are doing this out of spite. All believe it is a requirement from NCUA, and their own counsel or examiner reiterates this idea. Hey, when the regulator says to do something, you don’t argue!Trouble is, this is all based on a non-binding piece of guidance from 2003. Remember the web back then? We all had sparkling unicorns and weather banners adorning our sites. Because, Internet! Given these were coming from unrelated third-parties, it made sense to inform your members of potential risks navigating there. Today, portals are custom sites designed specifically for the institution, with specifications laid bare in lengthy contracts. If that isn’t a trusted site, I don’t know what is. Even more odd, many credit unions have warnings when clicking the NCUA icon…or their loan application!Each speed bump warning may seem innocuous, but they create falloff in member clicks, and generate suspicion in your members. “If my credit union doesn’t trust them, why should I?” It’s a valid question.Whenever you engage in a partnership or contractual agreement, I believe it should be to each other’s benefit. Both parties gain equally and with mutual respect. If you ever feel that is not the case, it’s probably not a great partnership. Putting barriers in the way of these efforts tilts the balance of trust. If your MSRs were recommending a service, they wouldn’t say, “We have this great program, and it would be perfect for you, but be careful, since we don’t really trust them with any of your information.”Why do it online?Disclosure: Credit unions working closer with their partners may include my company. Therefore, I may benefit financially from their changes.last_img read more

Head of Banten Islamic boarding school arrested for allegedly molesting students

first_imgThe head of a pesantren (Islamic boarding school) in Serang regency, Banten, identified as JM, 52, has been arrested for allegedly molesting his students.According to Adj. Comr. Indra Deradinata, head of the Serang Police’s detective and criminal unit, JM was arrested on Wednesday after four alleged victims spoke out against him.“The investigation is ongoing,” Indra told kompas.com.

But one of them finally dared to speak out,” Anton said.He added that JM had lured the girls by promising them an amulet that could improve their studying. After abusing them, he allegedly threatened to curse or expel them from the pesantren if they reported him.“[JM] is the chairman of the foundation and he never teaches in the pesantren.

So You Want To Coach?

first_imgWhat do you need to be a high school coach?  I think the biggest factor is being yourself. Teenagers are quick to pick up the fact that someone is a phony.  A lot of people getting into the coaching business think they have to pattern themselves after a famous coach.  In Bobby Knight’s hey day, everyone thought they needed to be Bobby Knight to be a winner.  For most, that was a disaster.X’s and O’s are still important, but everybody can develop X’s and O’s.  What you do with them is more important.  In high school coaching, most of the coaches are also teachers so the young athletes know your style.  If you are an easy going person in the classroom, be an easy going coach and vice versa.If you grew up in an inner city school, you will be a better coach for that type of student.  You will understand them better.  People who grow up in rural areas are seldom successful in the inner city, and an inner city coach is often too rough to deal with the rural school environment.As I said, be yourself and you will be much more successful!last_img read more

Wenger: No error with Ozil care

first_img However, the Arsenal manager insists there was nothing untoward and he had even stressed to Ozil the need to come off if feeling any muscle problems. Speaking at a press conference ahead of Saturday’s game against Hull, Wenger said: “He (Ozil) told me that once it was discovered on the scan. He did not tell me anything during the game, I did not even know. “What happened was that at half-time, just before we went out, the physio told me ‘Ozil has a little pain with his knee, but it is not bad’. “He wanted to go on and I told him ‘if you don’t feel well, tell me and I will take you off straight away’. He never did that during the whole game, and after I left him on because we were in a position where we needed to score a goal and he can deliver the final ball. “Then after the game, he went to Germany. With Germany, they thought at the start it was nothing. “We played on Sunday, on Monday he was off, and on Tuesday they gave him the day off. He was supposed to practice on Wednesday. “On Wednesday morning, he said he could still not practice. “They sent him for a scan, and in this scan they discovered that he has a knee ligament injury which is quite serious.” Ozil, the Gunners’ club record signing, faces a spell on the sidelines after scans by the German national team discovered a “partial rupture of the outer band of the left knee joint”. It has been suggested Wenger went against the advice of both the player and Arsenal’s own medical staff by keeping Ozil on at Stamford Bridge as his side looked to get back into a match they would go on to lose 2-0. Ozil is not expected to return to action until the start of 2015. Wenger added: “That is the only positive, that he will get the rest that he had not maybe enough after the World Cup. “Although I must say, I gave them until August 11, Germany played the final on 13 July, that was a month and should be enough after a big competition. “He is out for a while now, I think at least six weeks.” Arsenal have seen several players hit by injury, with defender Laurent Koscielny out because of an inflamed Achilles, the latest casualty. However, winger Theo Walcott is set to play for the Under-21s on Friday after nine months out with a knee injury, and captain Mikel Arteta could feature against Hull, while Aaron Ramsey is expected back for the Champions League tie in Anderlecht. “We have as well (Olivier) Giroud ahead of schedule, so we have some positive news, but in the defensive department, with the suspension of (Calum) Chambers, we are a bit short (on Saturday),” said Wenger. Chambers is one player who could be in contention for England’s Under-21 squad at next summer’s European Championships following successful qualification by Gareth Southgate’s squad. Wenger, though, feels for those who have already been promoted to the senior set-up, it should be club before country. “Once a guy has moved up to the full national team, you put him down (again to the U21s) he is never good,” said Wenger. “Apart from on the selfish front for us when a guy has played 50 games, it is better a guy has a good rest during the summer. but most of the time, when they move down, they are not completely at their quality.” Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger maintains there was no issue with allowing Mesut Ozil to play on during the second half of the Barclays Premier League defeat at Chelsea while carrying a knee problem which would eventually see the German playmaker ruled out for up to two months.
