Branch Manager Leadership Training

Branch Manager Training

Inlanta Mortgage branch managers gather for XINNIX leadership training.

XINNIX Leadership Training

A few weeks ago, Inlanta Mortgage Branch Managers gathered at the Crowne Milwaukee Plaza Airport Hotel to begin the XINNIX Leadership Training program. Lead by Casey Cunningham and Sarah Frederico, the XINNIX Mortgage Academy of Excellence team had a full agenda planned for Inlanta.

Appleton branch manager, Dave Selleck said,”Casey and Xinnix provided a very well presented 2 days of training with outstanding usable common sense content that will undoubtedly help me grow and better manage my branch.”

Both days, the managers worked in groups to complete the various tasks and exercises. Inlanta branch managers only gather together a few times a year, so this was a great opportunity for them to work on team building exercises and discuss new ways to lead their respective teams. One of the many exercises managers were tasked with was creating a formal business plan to go back and share with their teams.

Loan Officer Training

Branch managers spent a lot of time during the two-day session preparing for the eight-week Xinnix Loan Officer Training their staff will begin in a few weeks. These preparations will help our managers they lead their teams. Loan officer training includes in-field mentoring, structured accountability and blended learning. The XINNIX training program will empower Inlanta loan officers with a structured and proven sales and management process to ensure a measurable and sustainable production lift. Addtionally, new loan officers will take an introductory mortgage training course and receive full time access to Certified XINNIX instructors to ensure training comprehension.

Karaoke, Anyone?

While the managers worked hard these two training days, that didn’t stop the group from having a little fun. Throughout the training session, anyone who wasn’t back in their spot when breaks were over, had to get their whole table in front of the group to sign karaoke. After the first group trudged to the front of the room to belt out some tunes, the managers took their breaks much more seriously.
