Reality Check Coverage: CUNA Mutual Group Keynote Speaker Jeffrey Hayzlett Challenges Attendees to ‘Adapt, Change, or Die’

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. – People and companies fail to change. Why? Reality Check’s CUNA Mutual Group keynote speaker Jeffrey Hayzlett broke it down for attendees on Tuesday morning, challenging them to “adapt, change, or die” no matter what the cost.

NJCUL President/CEO David Frankil kicks off Reality Check by thanking sponsors and recognizing the League’s collaboration with the MD|DC Credit Union Association and the Pennsylvania Credit Union Association.

After a few words from NJCUL President/CEO David Frankil, who thanked sponsors and recognized the League’s collaboration with the MD|DC Credit Union Association and the Pennsylvania Credit Union Association, Hayzlett woke everyone up with a challenge to think big.

 

CUNA Mutual Group keynote speaker Jeffrey Hayzlett  wakes everyone up with a challenge to think big.

If you think big, you win fast, he said, pulling from his book “Think Big, Act Bigger”, which was given to each attendee as they registered. You are going to make mistakes, he said. Make them, but make them fast, and keep going. “You’re in the race of your life.”

“Limitations exist everywhere—mostly in our minds and in the stories we tell ourselves,” Hayzlett said, as he pointed out the reasons we fail: fear, tension, and risk. Get over your fear of being a beginner, create and overcome tension, and embrace risk.

Hayzlett also challenged leaders to reevaluate their credit union’s “mutual conditions of satisfaction” they present to their members, explaining that credit unions don’t sell loans, they sell promises. And your brand is your promise.
