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.

What Do Loan Officers Want?

 

Hammerhouse Study

 

Hammerhouse, LLC recently released the results of their 2012 Loan OfficerCore Business Components Study. The online survey asks hundreds of mortgage originators their views related to the core business components of residential mortgage lending including leadership, culture, business, operations, technology, and geography. Some of the results are startling.

Communication

According to the survey only 18% of mortgage originators describe their firm’s communications as clear, consistent and on time. Inlanta Mortgage prides itself on maintaining open lines of communication. Originators are provided with a number of tools to ensure open and clear lines of communication to ensure a smooth loan process for each and every customer. One of the tools Inlanta utilizes is a secure instant messaging system which allows employees to share sensitive customer information instantly. Other communication tools include a scenario engine which allows originators to ask underwriters questions about tough loan scenarios and to determine the best way to proceed. In addition, Inlanta provides every employee with access to our Inlantr@Net – our company intranet, a monthly newsletter detailing important department issues, and standard email groups that enable all employees to communicate with whole departments or groups of people.

Vision & Leadership

According to the survey, only 33% of originators think their leader’s vision is inspiring, clear and highly motivational. While Nicholas J. DelTorto has been in a leadership position for many years, he was recently been promoted to President at Inlanta. As President, DelTorto frequently communicates his vision through timely emails, personal branch visits, corporate functions, and through our monthly corporate newsletter. A thirty-year industry veteran, DelTorto understands the mortgage industry’s new environment and what it takes to thrive. He consistently seeks to align the company with ethical and professional originators who understand Inlanta’s vision – to survive and thrive through ethical lending practices and a comprehensive support platform that allows originators to do what they do best – originate.

Job Satisfaction

On a final note, the survey revealed that only 54% percent of loan originators like their jobs and only 45% percent think their firm is positive and team-oriented. Inlanta Mortgage continues to encourage cooperation and collaboration between partner branches and corporate headquarters.
