WINDSOR, Conn., Oct. 28, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- LIMRA, LOMA and Mindset Digital today announced a new set of Leading in a Social World courses, designed to get financial professionals up to speed on the most powerful social media channels.
"To be a leader in a digital age, you must be a digitally savvy leader," said Debra Jasper, the founder and CEO of Mindset Digital, which designed the courses. "Smart leaders understand that you can't just outsource digital, you must understand it."
According to LIMRA research, 7 in 10 young advisors are using social media; yet more than two thirds believe they need more support. Today, just 60 percent of companies have social media programs to support their financial professionals.
"Our members are always looking for ways to use technology to improve business outcomes," said Kathy Milligan, LOMA senior vice president of education and training. "This new training teaches the critical aspects of each social media channel and helps executives to thrive in a digital world."
The courses show leaders in insurance, banking and other financial institutions how to:
- Enhance their personal and professional online reputation
- Expand their networks
- Showcase their thought leadership
- Listen to key audiences
- Grow their organization's brand
The new courses — part of a Leading In a Social World curricula — will be offered in a series of 15-minute segments that can be viewed online 24/7.
