special focus on LEADERSHIP

a special focus on LEADERSHIP

making room for a new generation of leaders

prepare your business for market
changes and how you're going to
stay ahead of the curve.
Otherwise, you won't be able to
keep pace in a competitive arena.
Use innovative measures
As a tech-savvy, Millennial
generation becomes more of a
key player in the housing market,
it's more important than ever that
mortgage companies have
innovative leaders. It's a huge
asset. While innovation is about
technology, that is only one
component. Being innovative is all
about having an ability to think
outside of the box and find better
ways of doing business. It begins
with an innate curiosity and a
refusal to become stagnant. It's
means being a forward-thinker
and constantly looking for ways to
improve. Over the past few
decades, a lot has evolved within
mortgage banking and in order for
it to keep moving forward, you
have to keep fresh ideas. Whether
it's developing an innovative

approach to your operational
platform, streamlining the way you
process loans, or how you
connect with consumers, as a
leader you have to discover ways
to help your business run more
efficiently. You have to be aware
that old marketing methods will
likely not be effective with a new
housing consumer. You have to
devise a cutting-edge business
approach in order to remain
relevant and to thrive.
Work together
Being competitive is often
encouraged in our society,
especially amongst women.
However, a good leader
understands the power that's
created when there's unity
amongst mortgage professionals.
A leader sees value in
collaborating, so they're willing to
work together for the good of the
industry. That's why leaders must
be willing to set the example of
what collaboration and teamwork
look like. In order for women to

become key players in leadership
roles, they have to build bridges
with one another, instead of
opposing each other. Women
accomplish more when they work
together and support one another.
When one woman reaches out to
help another woman, they both
win. As you celebrate another
woman's accomplishments, you
not only empower her, but you
uplift women everywhere. It's
when women work together that
they have the greatest impact.
One woman can make a
difference but together, women
can rock the world.
Be a mentor
Ultimately, being an example of

a special focus on

the leadership you want to
cultivate is the best way to ensure
it happens. It's not enough to
simply recognize that we need
more diversity in mortgage
banking, we each have to do our
part to open up opportunities. As
you assume a greater leadership
role, reinvest what you've learned
in grooming a new generation. If
strong character, integrity, and
assertiveness are what you aim to
cultivate, then you must first
demonstrate these traits. If you
value innovation and
cohesiveness, then show your
team by being receptive to new
ideas and creating an environment
that facilitates working together.
Building diverse leadership begins
with mentorship. Creating the right
leadership begins with being the
kind of leader you want to see
developed.
